Community Servings’ mission is to actively engage the community to provide scratch-made medically tailored meals to individuals and their families experiencing critical or chronic illness and nutrition insecurity. We commit, in all our programs and business practices, to prioritize racial and economic justice and health equity. Vision: We envision a world in which everyone has access to the nutritious food they need for health and wellbeing as a fundamental right. Values: Community, Connection, Inclusion, and Nourishment.
This year, we will provide over 875,000 meals to 4,000 critically ill individuals and their families. Our meals are made from scratch and medically tailored, meeting the medical and nutritional needs of our clients with HIV/AIDS, cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, and other life-threatening illnesses.
Community Servings’ Registered Dietitian Nutritionists work closely with our clients to develop individualized nutrition care plans to help them manage medical conditions and provide guidance for managing nutrition-related medication side effects and weight loss or gain.
As one of the largest volunteer programs in the area, we welcome an average of 600 volunteers per month to work in our kitchen and deliver meals. More than 53,000 volunteer hours are donated each year.
