The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) grant funded a partnership between the patient communities in the eastern Coachella Valley, the University of California Riverside, FIND Food Bank, and the University of California Los Angeles. Utilizing the food items FIND distributes to the community and USDA’s MyPlate, the recipes are tailored to ensure ingredients are available and affordable to the patient community in the eastern Coachella Valley. Community members contributed their own family recipes and chose the theme “Ancestral Recipes: From My Grandma’s Kitchen to Yours.”
