Nutrition Pantry Program Building, supporting and certifying a network or client centered, health-focused food distributions

About the Nutrition Pantry Program

The Nutrition Pantry Program (NPP) is a healthy pantry program addressing the policy, systems, and environment (PSE) of a food distribution with a trauma-informed approach. Through the Nutrition Pantry Program, Gleaners supports pantries with implementation of best practices. When working with Gleaners and NPP, pantry partners receive support in implementing client and community-centered food distributions, gain access to a library of resources, and join a national network of certified pantries across the country.

7 Focus Areas of the Nutrition Pantry Program

  • Client Feedback
  • Community Connections
  • Nutrition Education
  • Environment
  • Inventory and Waste Reduction
  • Cultural and Dietary Accommodations
  • Policies and Procedures

Ultimately, participation in the program increases pantry capacity and supports client-centered food distributions. Pantries who participate in NPP are also able to obtain a bronze, silver, or gold level of certification.
