Who We Are
We are a coalition of Medically Tailored Meal Intervention service providers in California.
CalFIMC is composed of community-based non-profit organizations in California with a collective 140 years of expertise in engaging volunteers and funders to provide meals and support to individuals facing a serious illness, including many clients who do not qualify for other free and low-cost meal services.
Medically tailored meals (MTM) are meals approved by a Registered Dietitian (RD) that reflect appropriate dietary therapy based on evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines to address a medical diagnosis, symptoms, allergies, medication management and side effects to ensure the best possible nutrition-related health outcomes. A Medically Tailored Meal Intervention (MTMI) goes further and includes a CalFIMC approved nutrition education curriculum appropriate for diagnosis and administered by a registered dietitian, in addition to in-home, virtual and telephonic nutrition education and wellness checks, as needed.
