Community Servings

Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. We give our clients, their dependent families, and caregivers appealing, nutritious meals, and send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares. We are leading members of the Food is Medicine Coalition, a national association of nonprofit food and nutrition service providers that advocates for the integration of medically tailored foods into health care payment and delivery systems. Community Servings has partnered with rigorous external clinical researchers to co-author two peer-reviewed journal articles demonstrating that our medically tailored home-delivered meals program improves health outcomes, reduces health care utilization and costs, and improves quality of life for individuals coping with complex illnesses: Meal Delivery Programs Reduce the Use of Costly Health Care in Dually Eligible Medicare, and Medicaid Beneficiaries and Medically Tailored Meal Delivery for Diabetes Patients with Food Insecurity: A Randomized Cross-Over Trial.
