What is WellSCAN?

The WellSCAN suite of technology is housed, licensed and serviced by the University of Connecticut Digital Experience Group, and includes the WellSCAN Global nutrition database, WellSCAN Connect API, and the WellSCAN app.

Based on the latest nutrition guidance from Healthy Eating Research and research from the UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy and Health including the HER Guidelines, WellSCAN is a suite of digital tools aimed at helping food banks and pantries better identify and report on the nutritional quality of their inventory.

This project has been made possible by support from Partnership for a Healthier America, Feeding America, The Claneil Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
