Access to affordable, nutritious food is crucial for good health, yet many face barriers. Food is Medicine programs use food-based interventions to prevent, manage, and treat diet-related diseases. Integrating nutrition into our healthcare system could lower costs and reduce the need for invasive health services.
Since 2019, The Rockefeller Foundation has committed $100 million to advance Food is Medicine initiatives, including vital research with partners like the American Heart Association’s Health Care by Food Initiative.
