The Healthy Pantry Nudges Project aims to promote health and healthy eating habits by improving policies, systems, and environmental changes at food pantries. By increasing the availability of healthy food where food bank clients shop, this project increases the likelihood that our North Texas neighbors establish healthy eating habits. The healthy choice is made the easy choice!

Healthy Pantries promote healthy eating by focusing on improving policy and system changes at pantries. This can include adopting a nutrition policy, incentivizing healthy foods chosen by shoppers, expanding hours, and fostering donor relationships that encourage nutritious donations.
