Medically tailored meals may be saving lives

July 12, 2019

Community Servings, a nonprofit organization that provides nutritious meals for people with critical illnesses who are too sick to feed themselves or their families, according to an article on the STAT News website.

Community Servings started in 1990 at the height of the AIDS crisis with meals for those living with HIV/AIDS. At the time, many people with this disease died of malnutrition as lean body mass was consumed to fight the virus.

The organization serves people with a broad cross section of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and kidney disease.

Community Servings now makes and delivers about 2,500 meals a day for as many as 15 different diets specially designed for particular illnesses or, in some cases, combinations of illnesses.
