Momvocates are champions for health and nutrition safety net programs within Operation Food Search and in the state of Missouri.
These women are using their voices to increase understanding among lawmakers about food insecurity and advocate for policies that improve health and food access. Momvocates seek to build a healthier future for all families through advocacy and policy change.
This inaugural cohort of Momvocates includes graduates of our Fresh Rx: Nourishing Healthy Starts program. The program connects families who are experiencing food insecurity with fresh, local food and resources for a healthy household. We partner with healthcare providers and insurers to help families reach their health goals, support the community and reduce health care costs.
