Food is the Foundation

An expansion project to bring more medically tailored meals to our critically ill neighbors in need.

Food Heals

Help us triple the number of medically tailored meals we produce so we can heal more neighbors in need.

Food is Community

With your help, we can double our daily volunteer capacity & job training program graduates.

Project Vision

Community Servings’ Food is the Foundation Campaign will change the way America feeds the sick by tripling the capacity of our medically tailored meals program and creating the Food & Health Policy Center to scale our model nation-wide.

The Need

At any given time, there are 100-150 individuals and families on our waitlist, anxiously waiting for home-delivered, medically tailored meals. This unmet need grows while our current facilities cannot meet the demand.

In addition, as we’ve proven that medically tailored meals result in a 16% reduction in healthcare costs, we’ve been successful in attracting innovative partnerships with health insurers to provide our meals to their sickest, most costly patients.
