This Request for Information (RFI) invites input on research opportunities and best practices for Food is Medicine research programs. These programs are part of a whole-of-government approach to end hunger, improve nutrition and physical activity, and reduce diet-related diseases and disparities. Review of this entire RFI notice is encouraged to ensure a comprehensive response is prepared and to have a full understanding of how your response will be used. BackgroundPoor nutrition is one of the leading contributing factors of death and disability in the U.S. Indeed, millions of Americans are affected by food insecurity and diet-related diseases, including heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Besides the economic burden, the toll of hunger and these diseases disproportionately impact underserved communities, including NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities, people with disabilities, older adults, certain military families, and veterans. Better integrating nutrition into health using Food is Medicine initiatives is a key component of the Biden-Harris Administration National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health.
