Mental Health Awareness Month: The impacts of food insecurity
Without access to fresh and nutritious foods, the whole health of Idahoans suffers through mental health issues and chronic disease diagnoses. Idaho’s unique geography exacerbates this problem limiting access to affordable and nutritious food.
"I'm ending hunger because no one should go hungry," said Idaho Foodbank CEO Karen Vauk. "We have the food, we have the resources, we have people who need the food. It's a matter of getting it to the right places when people are in need. And most importantly, I'm ending hunger because we want to keep people healthy."
Join Optum in helping end hunger and improve whole health for families, individuals and children. For Mental Health Awareness Month, Optum will match donations to the Idaho Foodbank up to $50,000.
