1. Home-delivered meals.
2. Congregate meals.
3. Women, Infants, and Children Supplemental Food Program (WIC).

WIC is the best option. Home-delivered and congregate meals are for adults older than age 60 years. The food bank does not ensure adequate intake of the appropriate nutrients during pregnancy. CN: Management of care; CL: Apply
