Food Security Program
Feed the Need - A Program of Mid-State
Hunger is often invisible, but it is a reality for many in our community. Our friends, neighbors, and community members are going to sleep and waking up hungry, or with nothing to eat at all. They are having to choose between paying an electric bill, or a heat bill instead of buying meals.
The Feed the Need Program at Mid-State was developed to fight those food insecurities that our patients and their families may face. By implementing an evidence based screening tool into our primary care model, we are able to identify those of our patients who may not have the food resources they need to be healthy.
Feed the Need gives our patients who screen food insecure a bag of healthy groceries that can feed four people for three days, as well as a gift card to the local grocery store to purchase fresh meats and veggies. In addition, patients are connected with one of our Care Team Members to help them connect and navigate local food resources available.
