At Seattle Children’s we are exploring the idea of opening a food pantry for our patients and families at our main hospital campus. I’m curious if other hospitals are doing this, how they navigated compliance (legal, regulatory, risk, etc.) and if they are counting their service as community benefit? Thank you so much CBISA community!

I hope you’re well! Our medical center has a food pantry. Due to the way our institution is compartmentalized, we are only counting a fraction of the cost/effort as CB.
Re: compliance: I can put you in touch with the managers of our pantry – they might have some insight for you in that arena.
Feel free to reach out directly, I can make that connection.

I would reach out to Good Neighbor House in Dayton. We partner with them.
