The requirement of medically personalized meals to be part of the healthcare system

,

A not for profit organization, community servings is located in Boston, Massachusetts. It distributes self-made food to poor patients and their families. Patients are often observed consuming unhealthy meals or not eating at all. As the CEO of the organization, Waters says “providing patients with healthy food will help them recover soon”

Initially, the organization started by providing food to 30 people, suffering from HIV/AIDS in two neighborhoods in Boston. Before joining community servings as a volunteer, Waters was working in a four-star restaurant in Boston. He soon fell in love with the vision of the organization.

IN 2004, Community Servings became bigger and better as it started its services in other cities and decided to cater to people suffering from diseases other than AIDS/HIV as well. By now it offers 2500 meals daily and 650000 meals yearly to patients in 21 cities of the state.

As patients suffering from different diseases are recommended different diet plans, Community Servings has finally been able to prepare 300 different combinations of meals daily. It helps them cater to a larger group.

Talking to the food tank Mr. Waters mentioned “we have to take people in confidence that the food we provide, is exactly what they need.

Waters hope to gain sponsorship from health payers by showing that the MTM program plays an essential role in helping patients recover. According to a study, the patients who were part of the MTM program spent about 16% less on their healthcare.

Community servings along with the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School designed a healthcare system where food carries an important role. In this system, patients have been given food vouchers according to their needs and payers repay providers and community-based nutrition organizations for the services.
