How Hurley Medical Center is combating food insecurity

One in six U.S. households experiences food insecurity, which means they have limited or uncertain access to nutritionally adequate and safe food. Individuals who are food insecure are twice as likely to suffer from diabetes and are three times as likely to be in poor overall health. Hurley Medical Center serves communities in Genesee County, Mich., with a food insecurity rate that is over four times the national average.
