Gayle Anderson was live in Hollywood to begins a series of reports about a new program known as California’s "Food is Medicine" Pilot Project. This is a three-year, $6 million project that targets Medi-Cal (Medicaid) patients who suffer from ongoing congestive heart failure and provides 12 weeks of meals at no charge that adhere to evidence-based nutrition guidelines. During the Medically Tailored Meal Intervention program, a registered dietitian administers a CalFIMC-approved nutrition education curriculum, in-home, virtual, and telephonic nutrition education, wellness checks, and an assessment of program participants.
