Helping Ensure Financial and Food Security Through Community Partnerships for Patients in the Urban Care Network

PI: Saba Khan, MBBS, FAAP

Through this pilot work, we will determine whether it is feasible to:

  1. Refer families screening positive for household food insecurity within a primary care clinic to BDT
  2. Connect families directly with a representative from BDT to enroll in one or more public benefits
  3. Successfully enroll eligible families into one or more public benefits programs.

Additionally, we will assess the rate of household food insecurity among this urban population of families and explore child health and demographic characteristics associated with household food insecurity.
