CINCINNATI, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CarePoint Partners (CarePoint), one of the largest, fastest growing independent home infusion therapy companies in the United States, conducted its annual food drive through the month of April at its twenty-five locations in nine states. The campaign helps the less fortunate in the communities where CarePoint operates. Called the "Got Food?" campaign, CarePoint was able to collect and donate over 5,600 items of food. The company's Dallas office rose to the challenge by collecting over 2,000 food items and was dubbed the food collection champion.

The company once again partnered with its healthcare provider customers like hospitals and doctors' offices to collect the food items and also used its own offices as local drop-off stations. All food collected was donated to local food banks for distribution to the needy.

The "Got Food?" campaign was inspired by the company's Nutrition Now program, which provides nutrition care in a home environment. "We know that well-nourished people respond better to medical treatment and report an improved quality of life," says Nutrition Program Director, Marianne Duda, MS, RD, LD/N, CNSD. "We are hopeful that our food drive will not just feed the hungry, but will also draw attention to the important role that nutrition plays for those who suffer from related disorders."

For more information about participating in next year's food drive, contact your local CarePoint Partners office. A location list is available on the company's website: www.carepointpartners.com
