February 5, 2015 – Kim Kessler, Policy and Special Programs Director of the Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy, aired the seventeenth episode of “Eating Matters,” on Heritage Radio Network titled “Prescribing Food, Part 2: Delivering Food to the Most Vulnerable.” In this episode, assistant producer Talia Ralph welcomes Alissa Wassung, the Director of Policy and Planning of God’s Love We Deliver, which is an organization that tailors nutritious, health-promoting meals for people living with serious illnesses. Along with Sarah, a client of God’s Love, the conversation spans how their client base has grown and changed to what progressive policies are happening in New York State to make these kinds of services easier to access. “Food is love,” is one of GLWD’s central tenets, but it is also a powerful tool to make people’s lives easier and healthier as they face cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other serious illnesses.
