More than Food is a framework for building capacity in food pantries to more effectively address the root causes of food insecurity. The purpose of More than Food is to help pantries offer healthy client choice, connect clients with community services, and instill a culture that is welcoming so clients can set and reach goals. The framework includes three continuums: choice, connection and culture.
Through a collaborative effort, we provide practical tools, training materials and guidance to help pantries build capacity. The goal is to help pantries operate at the highest level possible on each continuum.
