Family and Food Matters Family Program (FFM)
Through FFM, evidence-informed, manualized curricula were created with the aim of decreasing food insecurity in caregivers with kids and pregnant women in New York City, while increasing the ability to address the well-being of the family units and pregnant women, as well as increasing support for them.
FFM materials are available in English and Spanish.
