Chicago pilot program helps Medicaid patients with high blood pressure get healthy food

"Every week for the past year, Chavez and more than 100 other hypertensive Medicaid patients have received a box of fresh produce delivered to their home for free, thanks to funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and a team of partners.

Simply put, the partnership works like this: Top Box Foods provides the food. Alivio Medical Center in Pilsen chooses the participants, provides coaching, and tracks their progress. Medical Home Network serves as the connector and analyzes the data."
