Food Bank (Rotation)

Being from a state that celebrates, mourns, and defines its very culture with food, my upbringing was surrounded in what seemed to be an abundance of the stuff. However, millions of Americans — students, babies, coworkers — go hungry each day, unsure of where their next meal will come from. Food insecurity. Have you thought much about the term and its implications? Before delving into studying nutrition and becoming a registered dietitian (RD), I really had not spent much time thinking about hunger in America. But during my residency in nutrition at Vanderbilt, I had a rotation through Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. I was able to visit with actual families facing hunger at an emergency food pantry. I prepared educational materials to guide individuals benefiting from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — formerly known as the Food Stamp Program — through the grocery store, showing them how to make the best use of their SNAP dollars. During this rotation, I dared to do the SNAP Challenge, during which I ate on $4.40/day to experience firsthand the reality of feeding myself on SNAP benefits. It was not easy. Staying within the budget was a challenge in and of itself. I remember reaching for strawberries to add to the cart, realizing I would not be able to “afford” them that week. We are seeing unbelievable rates of obesity in those receiving food assistance. Sadly, the dollar stretches much further with chips and honey buns, in comparison to fruits and vegetables. This contradictory concept of hunger and obesity coinciding has been termed the hunger-obesity paradox. The reality is, when a food insecure family is faced with choosing between inexpensive, calorie-dense food or more expensive, healthier items like fresh produce, the former, more affordable option will likely win out, leading to an overweight — yet, still nutritionally malnourished — family.
