Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland, Inc.

This grant supports a joint effort by Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland, Moveable Feast, Benefits Data Trust, and Health Management Associates to design and test a new nutrition services model that will enable health insurers and other health care providers to contract with community based organizations to provide nutritional services for patients.  The project seeks to capitalize on increasing interest in, and opportunities for, the health care sector to partner with community organizations to meet non-medical needs of patients that have significant impacts on health, often referred to as "social determinants of health." Food insecurity, and lack of access to nutritious food, is one of the major social determinants of health in Baltimore City.
