Moveable Feast

At Moveable Feast, our mission is to improve the health of Marylanders experiencing food insecurity and chronic illness by preparing and delivering medically tailored meals and providing nutrition education, thereby achieving racial, social, and health equity.

Volunteering as a dietitian assistant allows for you to personally connect with our clients over the phone. Support the Nutrition team by reaching out to new clients to assess their current health and nutritional status through a set of guided questions. Your call will be an introduction to the Medical Nutrition Therapy services that Moveable Feast provides, and you will help the team prioritize those who are most in need of nutritional counseling.

All client calls are done from our office, and volunteers have the option of choosing their shift hours Monday-Friday between 9am-3pm. All scripts and training will be provided on site by our Nutrition team. This position would be a great fit for folks who feel comfortable speaking to clients on the phone and keeping detailed notes. Volunteers with medical background are a plus!

About Moveable Feast

Location:

901 N. Milton Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21205, US

Mission Statement

Improve the health of Marylanders experiencing food insecurity and chronic illness by preparing and delivering medically tailored meals and providing nutrition education, thereby achieving racial, social, and health equity. Our vision is a Maryland where people come together to feed people, fight disease, and foster hope.

Description

For our clients Food is Medicine. By eating right, our clients can strengthen their bodies and better fight their diseases. So we make sure they get the best meals possible delivered right to their doorstep at no cost. Dietitians on staff work hard to develop nutritious menus, tailored to 7 different diets in order to meet clients’ health needs (for example; renal, diabetic, no seafood, etc.). We make every meal in our kitchen at N. Milton Avenue and partner with local farms and gardens whenever possible.

Our staff and volunteer drivers deliver meals to clients in Baltimore City and 14 Maryland counties some as many as 140 miles away from our N. Milton Avenue kitchen.

Our registered dietitians provide free nutritional counseling to our clients to improve their eating habits and health long term. We also provide door-to-door transportation to medical appointments for Baltimore City clients who are too ill to drive or take public transportation.
