What is VeggieRx?

VeggieRx is a FREE fresh produce prescription program that helps improve healthy eating habits for individuals experiencing food insecurity and diagnosed with diet-modifiable disease(s). Participants receive ten weeks of fresh locally grown vegetables/fruits, nutrition education, and one-on-one support from HDFFA’s Nutritionist.

Participants enrolled in our program eat more vegetables/fruits and experience less food insecurity. Participants are provided tools to shop for produce on a budget, use fresh ingredients and stretch their meals to last longer. True to our mission of supporting local, all the produce is purchased or provided from regional farmers. Since the program began in 2018, we have invested $85,623 in fresh food from local farmers, with a total impact of $148,985 on the local economy.

Eligibility for enrollment:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Experiencing food insecurity
  • Commit to 10 weeks during the summer
  • Diet-related disease (hypertension, diabetes or high blood sugar, overweight / obese, anxiety or depression disorder, high blood pressure, hypertension, heart conditions, chronic lung disease, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, arthritis and/or rheumatism)
  • Receive a referral from a health care provider (Dietitian, Physician, Nurse Practitioner etc.)

Where is the VeggieRx located?

This year, the program will be delivered in Bend and Warm Springs. In Bend, there will be two different delivery models: a) Bend Farmer’s Market vouchers, and b) a food share model delivered by Boundless Farmstead. In Warm Springs we are partnering with the Warm Springs Community Center, who is hosting the site for local participants to pick up their produce boxes.
