Food Is Medicine®
Food Is Medicine® Movement
Join us here at Performance Kitchen® in helping Congressman Jim McGovern to pass the Medically Tailored Home-Delivered Meals Demonstration Pilot Act of 2021, a bill that would establish a Medicare pilot program to address the critical link between diet, chronic illness, and senior health.
We know now more than ever that we must deepen our efforts to support U.S. seniors as they cope with chronic health conditions. In doing so we not only improve daily life, but also reduce the risk of life-threatening complications and make our nation less susceptible to the threat of public health emergencies.
At Performance Kitchen®, we truly believe that Food Is Medicine®. Our team of Registered Dietitians & Chefs have developed over 60 nutritionally balanced meals, which are prescribed by doctors and adhere to 100+ diagnostic codes. We provide culturally inspired, medically tailored, tasty meals, that people want to eat, not have to eat. These meals are covered by insurance plans, to help members manage their chronic conditions and get their health back on track.
For all these reasons, we hope that you will join us in supporting this important legislation.
Contact your Congress person today and ask them to cosponsor this bill.
