On Nov. 4, 2011, Grantmakers In Health (GIH) convened an Issue Dialogue on the intersection of food and health, to examine the current U.S. food system and discuss approaches foundations can use to address food access and nutrition. GIH is a nonprofit educational organization that informs the work of health philanthropy, of which the W.K. Kellogg Foundation is a member.

There are macro-level factors that contribute to food insecurity, such as the organization of the food system, and there are local factors, such as people not being able to afford healthy food, or living in neighborhoods where it is hard to find good, fresh food at affordable prices. Exciting work is going on to develop local solutions to improve food access, and an increasing number of foundations are making grants to support these activities.

The Issue Dialogue included a series of short presentations on local solutions. These presentations reflected the creativity and energy that are transforming food access and improving health in many communities.
