Here at God’s Love We Deliver, we follow an evidence-based approach to feeding people with serious illness. We have seen that people with serious illness don’t just need food, rather they need individually tailored meals that consider the many challenges that they face. We provide medically tailored meals (MTM), an effective combination of medical nutrition therapy from Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and healthy meals customized to a client’s medical conditions. Research from across the country has proven that this act of tailoring each meal to meet a client’s specific medical diagnosis works. In fact, it not only improves a client’s health outcomes, but it also keeps clients out of the hospital and improves food security and healthy eating behaviors, all the while dramatically reducing their healthcare costs.
The research we describe below has been completed by God’s Love and peer MTM agencies across the country.
