Who is Foodsmart?

At Foodsmart, we’re knee-deep in changing the food and nutrition landscape and we’re leveraging technology and our team of bright minds with big hearts to make it happen. We believe that eating well should be within reach for all, not some. That food should be accessible, affordable and the foundation of good health. And that we have a role to play in addressing the nutrition insecurity that plagues too many, and that has a direct impact on our health and susceptibility to illness. With the largest national network of registered dietitians, our mission is to provide our patients with simple solutions to accomplish their health goals through a personalized program. We understand that eating is not just essential; it’s personal. So, we prioritize personalized connection - placing our patients with a dietitian who understands their needs and supports them by setting realistic goals, providing side-by-side coaching, and celebrating successes along the way.

Who do we serve?

In this role, you’ll work with members from various health plans, including commercial and employer-sponsored plans and Medicare/Medicaid populations. Our patients come to us from all corners of the U.S. We operate in all 50 states! Foodsmart creates lasting and sustainable change in Medicaid communities by tackling the root causes of food and nutrition insecurity. We provide members with personalized guidance, access to affordable healthy food options, and access to SNAP benefits if they qualify. In turn, we see improved food and nutrition security, more health equity, and better engagement and enrollment. Foodsmart dietitians play a critical role in addressing food insecurity and are uniquely positioned to support their patients to overcome barriers that cause food insecurity. Our white glove experience has been shown to reduce patient drop-off and keep our patients engaged and motivated. We’ll train you to assess food insecurity in your patients, check eligibility for SNAP, and set up SNAP benefits for your patients so that at their next visit with you, they’re empowered to begin their journey towards improved health and nutritional status. By supporting their access to SNAP, you'll directly help them get up to several hundred dollars per month for food that they can spend on healthy food items with your support. At every step of the way, Foodsmart dietitians provide culturally relevant and budget-friendly recommendations that are individualized to the unique needs of each patient.

The nutriquiz is a great way to make sure i’m on the right path and helps keep me motivated. I’ve been on a weight los journey for 18 months and i’ve lost 55lbs. I’m sleeping better and have more energy. I was surprised by how much more energy I've had after using Foodsmart.

I have Hashimoto’s and losing weight can be very difficult. I have lost 10 pounds in 3 months, my joints don’t hurt as much, I sleep better, and have more energy to be active than ever before.

Ready to join our network? Tell us about yourself and we'll be in touch!

We're building a network of qualified dietitians to join us as we scale. If you'd like to be included in our network in order to onboard in the future, join here. We'll contact you when there's an opportunity! We encourage registered dietitians with any state license(s) to apply as we work with patients in all 50 states, but we expect significant growth in these states:
  • Illinois
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Wisconsin
  • Massachusetts
If you don’t have a license in any of our high-growth states, we still encourage you to apply. You do not need to be physically located in the state where you’re providing services, and you can hold multiple state licenses at once. State licensing differs for each state and processing timelines range from 1 day to 8 months; we’ll support you with the right information to get started on licensing!
