Adaptability is the key to health! When the COVID pandemic began to spread across California, ALL IN’s Food as Medicine initiative made two crucial adaptations:
1. Transitioning the in-person Behavioral Pharmacy, run by Open Source Wellness, to virtual video calls and
2. Pivoting the pop-up Food Farmacies, co-located in community health clinics, to doorstep food deliveries made by Dig Deep Farms and Food Hub.
By making healthy food accessible and providing ongoing social support, FAM has reduced the overlapping burdens of food insecurity, chronic disease, and COVID hospitalizations. Together, we can adapt and stay well! #allinalamedacounty #allinforfoodsecurity #foodasmedicine #foodfarmacies
