Tackle Social Determinants of Health. Improve Health Outcomes. Increase Member Satisfaction.

Health plans and systems can partner with Food & Friends to bring the benefits of our evidence-based, home-delivered meal intervention to their members.

Food & Friends has 30 years of experience home-delivering meals to clients living with chronic or serious illnesses. Our staff will work with you to tailor our program to meet your organization’s goals. Whether you want to implement a post-discharge meal program to decrease readmissions or a longer-term intervention to stabilize your most at-risk members, Food & Friends can make it happen.

Research shows that our home-delivered, medically tailored meal program leads to better health outcomes, greater patient satisfaction, and lower total medical costs.

Food & Friends provides:

  • Enhanced Care Coordination
    • The client services team works with care coordinators to ensure a smooth transition for newly referred members. Also, our staff provides an extra layer of support to link your members to key community resources and communicate important information (e.g. changes of address or hospitalizations) back to care coordinators.
  • Specialized Menus
    • Our registered dietitians and chefs have developed 11 specialized meal plans ranging from well-balanced regular fare to heart-healthy, GI friendly and diabetic, and even soft or pureed.
  • Personalized Deliveries
    • With flexible delivery options and a dedicated fleet of drivers, our staff will ensure your members receive their meals on a schedule that works for them.
  • Expedited Intake process
    • Newly referred member are contacted within one business day and begin receiving meals on the next available delivery date.
