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
- 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.
