Drawdown

Sustainability through climate research, education, and action.


Drawdown + You

Drawdown is the world’s most comprehensive plan to reverse global warming. Poor nutrition is a leading contributor to presenteeism, which costs businesses 10 times more than absenteeism. Fortunately, when healthy foods cost less, people buy more of them and enjoy better health and lower healthcare costs as a result. So why aren’t healthy food benefits as common as dental and vision coverage? We see two main barriers: upfront costs and privacy concerns. So, we’re fixing them.


Why Plant-Based Eating?

Instead of requiring full buy-in and complex billing up front, we simplify things. Our bite-sized trials make it easy to sample nutrition benefits affordably and with no long-term commitment.

We work with you to determine whether and how nutrition benefits (i.e., employee discounts on healthy foods) can help your organization. If it’s a good fit, we scale from there. There are more than enough unsubstantiated “workplace wellness” programs already; we aren’t interested in creating another.


Impact + Opportunity

We curate healthy foods for your employees, you contribute as much as you’d like.

1. Sign Up 👋

You define the scope of your NutritionBenefits Pilot, then we open it up to employees. It can be limited to certain teams or a set number of employees; it’s up to you.

2. Buy + Eat 🥦

Participating employees use discount codes to buy curated, plant-based foods from Imperfect Foods plus add-ons like cooking courses and kitchen tools.

3. Assess 📉

Employees submit feedback (using Validation Institute’s BEST) regarding benefit engagement and usefulness, which we deidentify, assess, and use to guide next steps…

4. Decide 🧭

Whether it’s extending the pilot, ending it or launching a full-on program, we help you make an informed decision that truly serves your employees.


Expert Takes: Food as Prevention*

*These quotes refer not to NutritionBenefits specifically but to food as prevention in general. We have no affiliation with these experts and link to the original sources.

“All payers, both public and private, should integrate food and nutrition services into preventive care.” (Food is Prevention: The Case for Integrating Food and Nutrition Interventions into Healthcare)


Dariush Mozaffarian, M.D., Dr.P.H.

“These food as medicine approaches are gaining real traction. If pilot studies are implemented and work, there’s a very real chance you could in the near future go to the doctor, a doctor could write a prescription for food, and an insurance company will pay for part.” (Popular Science)


Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM

“Imagine how much money companies can save!” (Referring to the Plant-Based Workplace Intervention described here.)
