Outpatient Nutrition Program

nutrition facts

Acacia Network seeks to improve community health outcomes by reversing diabetes, heart disease, and obesity through a nutrition program that fosters the lifestyle modification of eating a more plant-based diet.

Our services include weekly nutrition classes of various topics, as well as live cooking demonstrations that focus on how to incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet. We also offer a nutrition class series for patients diagnosed with diabetes and/or who are overweight. Our program is currently the only one of its kind in the Bronx!


Anyone who has one or more of the following conditions and lives in New York State:

  • Prediabetes or Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Overweight or Obese

We accept pediatric patients as well, allowing parents of children who are suffering from any of the above conditions to attend the classes. We offer pediatric-specific classes every 6 weeks.

We accept most insurances and offer need-based sliding scale fees for low-income patients. No referrals needed!
