"Food is Medicine" isn't just a motto; it is the foundation to Project Angel Food's Medically Tailored Meals delivery program
Project Angel Food launched a statewide pilot program for people with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) in April 2018. The purpose of the pilot is to prove our medically tailored meal (MTM) and medical nutrition therapy intervention can improve health outcomes and reduce health care costs in 12 weeks.
The Wilbur May Foundation Healthy Mornings Program provides funding for nutritious breakfasts, seven days a week delivered directly to homes of children in need. Breakfasts include homemade granola, oatmeal, cereal, cheese sticks, raisins, and milk.
The isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the loneliness of many of our clients, as well as some of our volunteers. The Telephone Angels program adds human contact to the lives of both our clients and volunteers through regularly scheduled phone calls to check-in, share updates and add brightness to the day.
The Native American Diabetes Project in conjunction with the USC Keck School of Medicine is a two-year study that integrates nutrition, social needs, and tradition and measures how Project Angel Food’s Medically Tailored Meals, combined with counseling, and community can improve health outcomes and mental wellbeing of Indigenous People with Diabetes.
