Future directions for this project include working with local food banks to arrange a sustainable food supply for the pantry. By providing our patients access to healthy food, we aim to address one of the many barriers to improving health and wellbeing. We hope this approach can be adopted in outpatient practices throughout the region as an effective approach to food insecurity. Clinic employees and providers have been proud to share this project with their patients as a way to demonstrate the COB commitment to the community.
