Bento: Member Support Manager



Customer Service
Posted on Saturday, April 13, 2024
Bento is on a mission to ensure that lack of consistent access to nutritious food is no longer a barrier to one's health, happiness or pursuit of purposeful life. Over half of all adults in the US have a nutrition related chronic disease, such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease, disproportionately impacting low income community members. Despite the best intentions of food banks, government food assistance programs and legacy disease management programs, these solutions have not been sufficient to effectively address and eliminate this problem, which has only gotten worse, not better. As a venture-backed startup, Bento is taking a new approach.
Bento provides members with stigma-free access to convenient and nutritious food that has been curated by a team of Bento registered dietitians and delivered from nearby grocery stores in and around our member's community. This not only improves our member’s overall quality of life, but also generates the trust and consistency needed for Bento to connect and engage them with the critical healthcare resources needed to improve their health outcomes. Recently approved by Medicaid as a medically tailored nutrition provider, Bento is rapidly expanding access to millions of eligible at-risk community members through partnerships with state and county medicaid plans.
