Our Story

In 2017, ALL IN Alameda County (ALL IN), which was spearheaded by Supervisor Wilma Chan and adopted as an initiative of the Board designed to address issues at the intersection of poverty and health, launched a series of food as medicine pilot programs intended to address these high levels of food and nutrition insecurity and chronic health conditions. Following the success of these pilot programs, ALL IN created the Recipe4Health (R4H) program in 2019 to provide medically supportive foods to low-income residents experiencing food insecurity and/or are diagnosed with, or at risk of developing, nutrition-responsive chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, heart disease, and many others. As of July 1, 2022, Alameda County’s Recipe4Health program was transferred to Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) to ensure support and alignment of its current programs with other services.
