National Eating Disorders Association

Monday, February 24, 2020
10 N Market St., Asheville, North Carolina 28801

Join Carolina Resource Center for Eating Disorders during #NEDAwarenessWeek 2020 for a panel and discussion about the intersection of food insecurity and eating disorders with Traci Malone Nutrition, Bountiful Cities, BeLoved Asheville, and Bounty & Soul.

Food insecurity is defined as a “lack of access to enough food for and an active, healthy life.” Estimates include 1 in 8 Americans are food insecure or 40 million people, including 12+ million children. It is estimated that eating disorders impact 80 million people in the United States. Research has uncovered a link between frequent food deprivation and eating disorder behaviors. Because of the misinformation around the cause of eating disorders and who is at risk, many people who struggle with both food insecurity and eating disorders may be overlooked.

Please join this community discussion with area professionals! We will talk about food insecurity, how food insecurity and eating disorders intersect, what is being done to combat food insecurity in our community, and thoughts about how to provide a more just and equitable care to those with eating disorders and food insecurity.

No cost. Open to the community. RSVP required by Feb. 18th.
