Food as Medicine (FAM) Programme to reduce food insecurity in New York

With the increase of food insecurity in the US, companies, such as Corbin Hill Food Project, are stepping forward to make healthy food accessible. Corbin Hill Food Project, a Harlem-based organisation, will implement Food as Medicine (FAM) programme in collaboration with Mount Sinai Health System and the Institute for Family Health’s Bronx Health REACH Project. Corbin Hill Food Project is the first firm in the US to have obtained a significant USDA FAM grant.
