Abstract

Health literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. This includes their ability to access necessities, such as food. Come and learn of one classroom’s journey to bring awareness to the issues of low health literacy, and the problem of food scarcity in their community. Together we were able to educate the student population, and bring awareness to one of Western Oregon University’s very own healthy-living resources, the Food Pantry.
