One-third of the workforce is now working remotely - and struggling with their weight as a result. For example, half of women and a quarter of men in a WebMD study said that they have gained weight in recent months. Beyond just their weight, many employees are struggling financially, making it hard to put healthy food on the table. And yet, good nutrition is more important than ever to reduce COVID-19 risk factors like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Join this session to hear creative ways to help employees eat nutritiously on a budget, including through subsidies, telenutrition and food prescriptions. Speakers will also share how to help furloughed and low-income employees through SNAP benefit accessibility, targeted food subsidies and personalized grocery discounts.
