Community Food Bank: Food Link

To improve patients’ health outcomes and reduce hospital encounters, the Community Food Bank proposed a unique project called Food Link that fosters healthy food access for first-time mothers and uninsured patients with diabetes or heart failure. The Food Bank will introduce a food insecurity-screening tool proven valid in medical settings to the staff of the UAB PATH Clinic, Heart Failure Clinic, and Nurse-Family Partnership Program. Patients, who screen positive for food insecurity, will receive fresh produce, healthy dry goods, and referrals to benefit programs and food pantries within the patient’s own community.
