After taking a break in 2022, VeggieRx will be back in 2023. This fresh produce prescription improves healthy eating habits for individuals experiencing food insecurity and diagnosed with diet-modifiable disease(s). Participants received fresh locally grown vegetables and fruits, nutrition education, and one-on-one support from HDFFA’s Registered Nutritionist.

VeggieRx participants eat more vegetables and fruits, experience less food insecurity, and feel more confident in their ability to stretch meals using fresh food and shop for produce on a budget. 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.
More information will be available by January 30, 2023.

“It gave me new heart healthy ideas. My family and I tried every recipe each week. All the fruit and veggies were always fresh. I even have gone to some of the venders stores since. I would like to say having 2 teenage boys we could of used a little more to go around.”
