UCSF, in partnership with the Center for Vulnerable populations, Harvard Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, and SPUR, is working to complete a landscape analysis of Medically-Supportive Food and Nutrition (MSF&N) interventions currently being provided across California. Medically-Supportive Food and Nutrition has just been added to the state’s Medicaid waiver proposal (CalAIM, page 217), and we are working to better understand the current availability of these services.

MSF&N interventions are defined as food and nutrition supports provided to patients in service of improving their health and in coordination with a medical provider. They include, but are not limited to, medically tailored meals, fruit and vegetable vouchers, and food pharmacies. To learn more, please click here.

In order to build a comprehensive map of services and providers, we ask that you, or someone who you feel best suited at your organization, fill out this survey. The survey will take no more than 10-15 minutes and asks questions including basic organizational information, types of interventions provided, intervention criteria, and funding sources. Once we have compiled answers, we will share results and a map with everyone who has participated

Again, we hope to reach every health care provider, insurer, government agency, and community-based organization providing medically-supportive food and nutrition interventions across California. Please feel free to forward this survey to the appropriate contact at your organization as well as forward it to other partners or connections you may have.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact:

Jennifer Tong or Katie Ettman.
