To support food as medicine programmes that address the issues of food and nutrition, Elevance Health Foundation has pledged to award $23 million. Elevance Health Foundation is an Indianapolis-based non-profit organisation that promotes food security among individuals suffering from chronic diseases. The non-profit organisation says that this funding will be employed to not only eradicate food insecurity but also to develop long-term solutions to address this issue. The organisation, which serves as the charitable foundation for Elevance Health Inc. (NYSE: ELV), formerly Anthem Inc., says that it will award more than $14 million to the Feeding America network to grow its food as medicine programmes.

Other than Feeding America, the fund is being awarded to 19 more organisations too.
