Food Is Medicine Interest Survey

Our journey began back in May 2022, when we hosted a “Food Is Medicine” virtual Meet-Up. We learned from experts in the fields of medicine, nutrition, programming, and research, as well as learned barriers and solutions to reduce healthcare costs through our food sources. The concept of “Food is Medicine,” is using food as both treatment and prevention of chronic disease through a healthy diet.

This past year, we received funding from the Nutrition Incentive Hub Capacity Building Fund to explore the beginnings of a Northwest Tennessee Food Prescription Program.

We are partnering with the McKenzie Hometown Health Clinic, the Tennessee Department of Health, the Carroll County Department of Health, Carroll County Extension, Second Harvest Food Bank, E.W. James, and Blackberry Pond Farm to begin a new “Food is Medicine” program to our region, but we need your help!
