INFORMATION FOR PARTNERS AND PATIENTS
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. Our state directive is to serve 60 Medi-Cal patients with CHF the first year.
We are seeking health care partners serving Los Angeles County to refer CHF patients. If you would like to partner with us, please contact:
