Are your clients struggling with food insecurity and poor health outcomes? Did you know that any qualifying health center that provides care for vulnerable communities can develop a comprehensive food assistance program that provides high quality food and services through the 340B Drug Pricing Program?

Come hear how our outpatient clinic and community partner organization did just that! The Birmingham AIDS Outreach Food and Education Delivery (B-FED) Program was developed to meet the nutrition, health, and education needs for people living with HIV using a novel approach to merge outpatient clinical and community patient care.

We will discuss (1) how to integrate food assistance into the clinical and community program workflows, (2) successful communication strategies between the outpatient clinic, community partner, and patients, and (3) how to manage your technology and financial needs to form a truly sustainable program. Our engaging expert panel will provide you with the tools you need to start (or modify) your own 340B-based food assistance program tailored to the needs of your patient population.
