The Food As Medicine revolution has been steadily gaining steam, with Zipongo at the forefront and now CU Health Plan jumping on board! Based on feedback from their employees that they were struggling with poor eating habits and that a nutrition program was their #1 need, CU Health Plan wanted to introduce a nutrition program that not only would help its employees with improving their eating habits and serve the longer-term goal of helping their population address chronic illnesses and other health issues. For CU Health Plan, Zipongo was the clear option.

As such, their selection process for new partners is extremely rigorous. CU Health Plan’s program lead was very intentional in her search for the perfect nutrition program to fit her employee’s needs.
