Investing in the intersection of food and healthcare is critical to achieving nutrition equity. Feeding Change submitted a letter informed by the Food Is Medicine Task Force that provides comments to inform the national strategy for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The letter aims to address the priorities of a broad patient population, including beneficiaries of federal health and nutrition programs and those at risk of experiencing economic and nutrition security. All recommendations are centered around elevating the patients’ voice and reducing barriers to ensure the most vulnerable can access and maximize FIM benefits. Additionally, the recommendations seek to expand the breadth of coverage for FIM interventions to include multiple types of nutrition prescriptions that address the full spectrum of diet-related disease and health condition care.
