Meeting the needs of citizens in a fiscally responsible way is important for many local governments today. Finding innovative, yet evidenced-based, ways to accomplish this can be challenging when addressing complex or ‘wicked’ social problems. Food insecurity is one of those complex problem faced by an increasing number of people and communities. In fact, the COVID-19 pandemic increased the number of residents experiencing food insecurity, in communities across the nation and around the world, to levels not seen since the Great Recession.
