New meal kit program benefits Lane County residents with food insecurity

A new pilot program at Peacehealth Sacred Heart Medical Center in Springfield gives low-income families meal kits and info on healthy eating and access to food assistance.

Dr. Serena Black is Medical Director of Peacehealth Children’s Service Line. She said the meal kit project is meant to help families at their clinic who screen positive for food insecurity.

“We want to give them food for the family for dinner that evening,” Black said. “Not sending people home hungry. And then, also, with the kits come a list of resources to access then food in the community.”
