Michigan State University: New resource helps food pantry staff serve clients with diabetes

Outside my wheelhouse, sharing anyway. Michigan State University: New resource helps food pantry staff serve clients with diabetes. “On average, 33% of all households that use food pantries have at least one family member with diabetes. Unfortunately, these factors can often lead to a cycle of poor health outcomes — food insecurity is more common among households with a person living with diabetes, yet food insecurity is a risk factor for developing diabetes. To help fight this problem, MSU Extension has created a free online learning module called Navigating the Food Pantry with Diabetes. This course helps food pantry staff better serve clients who are managing diabetes.”
