The Hunger Caucus Takes on Food is Medicine

In January, Congressman Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, the founder and co-chair of the House Hunger Caucus and great friend of God’s Love We Deliver, hosted a Congressional Briefing to launch the new bipartisan Food is Medicine Working Group. Through this partnership, we helped plan and execute the second Food is Medicine Congressional Briefing in May. The importance of medically tailored meals on meeting the healthcare reform goals of lowering costs and improving health outcomes was driven home by an impressive panel of presenters: Dr. Seth Berkowitz, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine; William George, President and CEO, Health Partners Plans; Robert Greenwald, Center for Health Law & Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School; Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts University; and Karen Pearl, President & CEO, God’s Love We Deliver, and Co-Convener, Food is Medicine Coalition.
