Integrating healthy food into patient health care

Innovation always starts with inspiration. Our inspiration comes from a simple premise, "You can't be healthy if you're hungry." We believe nutrition has a powerful effect on a patient's health. FOODRx is on a mission to provide millions of nutritious meals for patients who can't afford to buy enough healthy food.

Dedicated to building meaningful connections between food, patients, and health care, FOODRx integrates with health care systems to provide holistic food security solutions. We partner with health plans and providers through value-based care arrangements to improve patient health and engage their most vulnerable members through culturally effective food security services.

Embracing Food. Powering Health.

After spending 7 years clinically testing different ways to integrate food security solutions within a health care system, we launched FOODRx to provide health systems with a simple, cost-effective way to directly connect their patients to nutritious food and education that will improve their health.

FOODRx is built on an integrated care framework that is supported by patient engagement specialists with expertise in underserved populations, medically-tailored and culturally relevant food prescriptions, patient data analytics and warehousing, clinical research and evaluation, and the highly efficient food logistics operations of Second Harvest Heartland.

FOODRx is currently integrated into the following health plans and providers:

  • Hennepin Healthcare
  • Lakewood Health System
  • North Memorial Health Care
  • Mayo Clinic-Mankato
  • UCare
