We lead our national provider coalition of medically tailored food and nutrition agencies, the Food Is Medicine Coalition (FIMC). Together, we make the case that “Food is Medicine and Food is Love,” both critical to meeting the national healthcare goals of better health outcomes, lowered costs and increased patient satisfaction.
