Health Emergency Declaration (HED)

HED Food Basket Panel pt. 1

The National Black Church Initiative Health Emergency Declaration Health Panel has decided to make healthy food baskets the symbol of the Baltimore Health Community Project. These baskets will contain healthy fruits, vegetables, and grains — in addition to health information and healthy recipes - packaged in an attractive way to achieve HED’s objective.

The objective is to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables by 150% among NBCI member churches and congregations. Instead of distributing fruit and vegetables throughout the congregation, the Health Panel and HED Clinical Behavioral Team has decided that this approach will be absorbed more effectively by the African American community.
