A new set of nutrition guidelines for food banks and food pantries from Healthy Eating Research and Feeding America focuses on increasing access to healthier food choices. 

Healthy Eating Research, in partnership with Feeding America, has released a comprehensive set of evidence-based guidelines to help the charitable food system improve the nutritional quality of items provided to individuals and families. The guidelines focus on increasing access to healthier food choices, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products and lean proteins, with an easy-to-understand system that organizes and ranks products according to the amounts of saturated fat, sodium and added sugar they contain.
