Clancy Harrison is the creator of the Food Dignity® Project, which has forever changed the conversation around health and wellness in the United States. She works with top organizations to heighten their voice around food justice, food access, food security, and food waste. Her hyper-practical strategies propel her clients toward profitability through a variety of services based on individual needs and goals.
The Food Dignity® Project is a roadmap to secure access to healthy food with dignity. As the United States and world braces for the full socioeconomic impact of the COVID-19 crisis, The Food Dignity® Project, is a solution to meet the corresponding, rapidly emerging food insecurity crisis. According to Feeding America, 47% of Americans live with food insecurity as a result of our current economic crisis.
Without an equity-minded approach to address the social, economic, and environmental ramifications of people with food insecurity, we will continue to perpetuate poor health outcomes. During the pandemic (and beyond), rising rates of food insecurity, coupled with chronic disease and increased health care costs, will only serve to further devastated our local communities, companies, and our overall local economy. Food Dignity® fosters a sense of pride in oneself while asking for help during a difficult time and eradicates the internal and external shame associated with poor food access.
