Foods to Encourage (F2E)



The Foods to Encourage (F2E) framework, developed by Feeding America, promotes nutritious food that is often lacking and unaffordable by those we serve. The Foods to Encourage framework aligns with recommendations from USDA’s MyPlate and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The framework promotes the consumption of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.

F2E provides us with tools that assist us in measuring the nutrition quality of the food we distribute and helps us promote healthy eating.

We’ve compiled a list of shelf-stable items that can be ordered through our Power Purchase (PUR) program that meet F2E guidelines. This list of items supports recommendations for consuming more whole grains, lean protein, low-fat dairy products and fruits and vegetables with minimal amounts of added sugar or sodium.

We encourage you to select more of these items to promote better health to the clients you serve.
