Supporting Healthy Food Pantry and Food Bank Environments
The Healthy Food Pantry Assessment Toolkit provides an observational survey that can be used to measure the healthfulness of the local food pantry environment. This observational survey is also called an environmental scan or “e-scan.” The Healthy Food Pantry Assessment Tool can be used to measure the food pantry environment as it compares to best practices in food assistance agencies that is supported by “nutrition food banking” efforts.
