Moveable Feast’s mission is to provide healthy, nutritious meals to our clients. Part of this is deeply rooted in the belief that food is medicine. It helps them strengthen their body and helps them to better fight disease. We work closely with the Food is Medicine Coalition to assure that our menus that are medically appropriate, nutritious and tasty to meet the health and nutrition needs of our clients.
Within two weeks of coming onto Moveable Feast’s meal service, clients schedule their first visit with one of our Registered Dietitians. Through home visits and phone counseling, our Registered Dietitians work with clients to create individualized nutrition plans. Through their work, they are able to use Medical Nutrition Therapy that helps our clients manage their illness, their medications and their medical treatments. “Medically tailored meals (MTM) are meals approved by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) that reflect appropriate dietary therapy based on evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines to address a medical diagnosis, symptoms, allergies, medication management and side effects to ensure the best possible nutrition-related health outcomes.” -FIM Coalition
