Measuring Food Insecurity
October 26, 2021 @ 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Measuring food insecurity is critical for developing food assistance programs; evaluating nutrition, health, and development initiatives; and informing food policy across sectors. This panel will discuss how food insecurity is measured. We will speak with experts to explore how food insecurity has been measured and if new tools are needed to accurately assess food insecurity following the COVID-19 pandemic.
