*Risk & Protective Factor Research* Connection between childhood trauma & hunger


This is a fascinating research piece from the American Journal of Public Health that draws the connection between certain risk factors (child sexual abuse, household dysfunction and other ACE categories) and adult and child hunger. It is dated (2004), but it does highlight the need for protective factors as a successful strategy in building wellness and resilience.

I am highlighting this research piece because of the issue with inflation, housing and food insecurity, we need to uplift programming that connects sustainable safe housing, food sovereignty and strategies that promote high-quality early learning access that focuses on whole-family approaches in our community.
