Phoenix Food Hub welcomes referrals from other local agencies whose consumers would benefit from not only nutrition counseling but also other supports related to the social determinants of health.

To make a referral, please complete a Phoenix Food Hub Referral Form to initiate the referral process.

  • A Phoenix Patient Navigator will receive your form request and will facilitate your referral.
  • A Phoenix nurse and nutritionist will assess, counsel, and monitor consumers referred to the Phoenix Food Hub.
  • Community Health Worker(s) will assist consumers in effectively accessing and preparing healthy foods as well as managing special diets.
  • Referred consumers are eligible for: classes/workshops on healthy eating and food prep; food distribution; and access to other wraparound supports (mobility counseling, stress management counseling, etc.).

Phoenix Food Hub consumer services include:

  • Nutrition screening, nutrition counseling, and nutrition education (one-to-one and workshops), and tracking of appropriate clinical indicators

  • SNAP, HIP, WIC, and other nutrition-related benefits information sharing
  • The Food and Thought program which, as a part of overall nutrition counseling, helps consumers identify—and benefit from—the key connections between nutrition/diet and mood. This aspect of “food as medicine’ is a very promising practice integrating nutrition and behavioral health.
  • Wrap-around service supports including counseling related to housing advocacy, mobility, stress management, financial management, and more
  • Data systems that will capture both social determinant of health indicators as well as clinical indicators, correlating these appropriately, and clearly identifying how Phoenix Food Hub and its programs are improving overall community health and lowering health care costs
