Food Literacy for Families, Libraries, and Communities: South Carolina Read Eat Grow
Description: Discover how the South Carolina State Library is supporting public library programming statewide with an expanded focus on health literacy. In 2019, the South Carolina State Library was awarded a grant from NNLM SEA to promote healthy cooking and eating in rural communities, expanding on work already begun with the SC Read Eat Grow initiative. This presentation will describe how telling the story of your food, the definition of food literacy, is a way to build connections between library patrons, health providers, and other community organizations, while promoting behavioral changes that lead to healthier lifestyles.
