Public Housing Authorities leveraging partnerships to provide local food access

Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are going beyond providing affordable housing to also ensure that families have sufficient food. Even small PHAs have leveraged local partnerships and their connection to families to respond to food needs. For example, BangorHousing in Maine was able to draw on their existing partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Bangor to serve meals and deliver pantry bags to families in need. The Fort Wayne Housing Authority in Indiana is working with Meals on Wheels and a local food bank to provide meals to seniors. #covid-19 #foodsecurity #housing
