Food and Nutrition Security State Profiles
The resource was developed by NACDD/BRIC in collaboration with Feeding America and CDC’S Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity.  The purpose of the resource is to highlight the collaborative opportunities within each state to strengthen food and nutrition security programs, policies/practices and infrastructure. The state profiles, created in December 2021, are not an exhaustive list of resources and will be reviewed/updated annually. If you see a food and nutrition security partner or resource missing from a state profile, please email for consideration.         *=BRIC state recipient
