LA CROSSE (WKBT) – Gundersen Health System staff members help people find food resources in their communities.

With gas and grocery prices soaring, people are turning to free food pantries in their area.
Patients in rural communities often have more difficulty accessing food resources than those in urban areas.

Carla Nelson, Wellness Education Specialist at Gundersen, said: “We have a group of volunteers called Community Resource Connectors who reach out to these patients to help them find food resources directly in their area.”

Gundersen also encourages people to donate to local pantries or food banks.
