Medically-supportive food and nutrition Interventions are a way to prevent, reverse, and manage common chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. To secure the implementation of these powerful interventions, SPUR urges the budget committees to fund the food prescription pilots outlined in AB 368 and amend the budget trailer bill language to clarify and ensure easy implementation of medically-supportive food and nutrition interventions through CalAIM.
