Medically Tailored Groceries (MTG) include a selection of groceries curated by a Registered Dietitian/Licensed Nutritionist as part of a treatment plan for certain medical diseases. Once your physician provides an order for your prescribed food plan, you meet with our Licensed Nutritionist to assess your needs and plan your food intervention.

We currently offer five Medically Tailored Grocery plan options to meet the dietary needs of our clients and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus, Kidney Disease, High Blood Pressure, and other cardiovascular diseases that affect our community and those living with HIV/AIDS.

  • Groceries for a Regular Healthy Diet
  • Groceries for a Heart-Healthy Diet
  • Groceries for a Consistent Carbohydrate Diet (Diabetic Friendly)
  • Groceries for a Renal Diet (Kidney-Friendly)
  • Groceries for a Pescatarian Diet (based on a Regular Healthy Diet)

All grocery plans provide varied food options of protein (plant & animal sources), grains, dairy and include at least 28 servings of fruit and vegetables
