Improving health. One text at a time.

Bento is a software engagement platform designed to enable healthcare and community organizations to improve the health and wellbeing of their most vulnerable populations, starting with those who are food insecure.

WHY DO WE START WITH FOOD INSECURITY?

Nutritious food is essential.
Food insecurity forces people to
make difficult decisions every day.

There are over 50 million people in the United States who experience food insecurity, many are on Medicaid which enrolled 82 million low income Americans in 2021.
