About Food Is Medicine

Food Is Medicine (FIM) interventions are a spectrum of programs and services that respond to the critical link between nutrition access and health within the healthcare system. FIM interventions include produce prescriptions, medically tailored groceries and meals, and nutrition incentives.

Feeding Change responds to emerging needs in the FIM landscape by leveraging research and thought leadership to catalyze systems change, embed FIM interventions into policy and financing, and promote nutritional security. 

To move this work forward, Feeding Change convenes the Food Is Medicine Task Force, a unique collective of more than 40 thought leaders from diverse sectors - including insurance, food retail, healthcare, and non-profit - committed to accelerating FIM implementation.
