About Flexible Services

In 2018, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts received a five-year waiver from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare to improve the ways in which MassHealth provides care to its members.  Among many other elements, includes funding for a pilot Flexible Services Program.  Through the Flexible Services Program, accountable care organizations (ACOs) may pay for health-related social needs like nutrition and housing supports.

 Project Bread has partnered with multiple ACOs.  Through these partnerships we receive referrals from community health centers and primary care practices for individuals who are both food insecure and have a medical condition.  Upon receipt of referrals Project Bread staff conduct assessments and develop individualized service plans.

 We are currently seeking a Spanish speaking licensed or registered dietitian to join our team.

Role: The Nutrition Services Coordinator will respond to referrals and develop service plans customized to meet the individual needs of each client so that they can access the healthy foods needed to best manage their health conditions. This position will primarily work with members remotely, but the role may include some in-person visits on an as needed basis (post-coronavirus). 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Meet with clients by phone and in-person (post-coronavirus) to identify their individual barriers to healthy food access.
  • Design nutritional service plans to meet the needs of each client: this may include provision of food vouchers, transportation vouchers, and household kitchen items; connections to SNAP, WIC, School Meals, and other foods assistance programs; as well as community based programs such as community meals, medically tailored meals, food pantries, and others.
  • Provide nutrition counseling and cooking classes in Spanish.
  • Maintain connections with clients to ensure that the designed service plan is meeting their needs and adjust as appropriate.
  • Maintain accurate records in Salesforce.
  • Meet with health center staff to ensure ongoing communication is effective and timely.
  • Promote usage of Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline.
  • Perform other related tasks as needed.

Organizational Responsibilities and/or Secondary Responsibilities:

  • Participate in the annual Walk for Hunger, including working as event staff the weekend of the Walk, attending pre-Walk events as assigned, and supporting Walk for Hunger fundraising efforts.
  • Provide administrative support to other Project Bread departments as needed.
  • Participate in organization-wide events and meetings and perform other program duties as assigned.
