IRVINE, Calif. (April 18, 2019)— Radiant Health Centers is proud to announce a grant of $100,000, over two years, from UniHealth Foundation that will support Radiant Health Centers’ Medically Tailored Meals Pilot Project. Through a partnership with Project Angel Food, Radiant Health Centers will deliver an additional 3,250 meals each year tailored to support the unique medical needs of clients living with HIV and other chronic illnesses, ensuring they receive safe, easy to prepare and digest, and nutritionally dense foods.
“While our Nutrition Services Program has proven successful in improving client’s health, we recognize the need to expand our program to better serve our most vulnerable clients,” said Phil Yaeger, CEO and executive director, Radiant Health Centers. “We feel Project Angel Food is the perfect partner for this program and we are excited to leverage their experience providing nutritious, ready-made meals.”
Food and nutrition innovation is gaining more and more recognition in the healthcare arena. A 2018 study conducted at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, revealed that medically tailored meals greatly improved health outcomes and lowered cost of healthcare among nutritionally vulnerable patients. This new program will allow Radiant Health Centers and Project Angel Food to expand services throughout Orange County.
Radiant Health Centers provides the LGBTQ+ community with medical services that are compassionate and comprehensive while continuing to serve those living with and affected by HIV. Learn more at www.radianthealthcenters.org.
