COVID-19 Adaptations: Introducing a VeggieRx drive through.  To keep program participants safe and reduce in-person contact for participants, staff, and market vendors, participants will pick up produce kits at the Bend and Redmond Farmers Markets until further notice.

VeggieRx

VeggieRx is a fresh produce prescription program that improves healthy eating habits for individuals experiencing food insecurity and diagnosed with diet-modifiable disease.  Participants receive fresh vegetables and fruits, nutrition education, and one-on-one support from HDFFA Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist.

The majority of the produce provided Central Oregon farmers.  Since 2018, we have invested $27,000 into the pockets of farmers with a total impact of  $46,980 on the local economy. In 2020, we will purchase $25,000 in crops, providing 7,500 meals for 200 + families.  

VeggieRx participants:

  • Eat more vegetables and fruits
  • Experience less food insecurity
  • Feel more confident in their ability to stretch meals using fresh food and shop for produce on a budget.

I feel better. I feel more confident to work out. To make other lifestyle changes. Once you start feeling better you just want to continue to make healthier changes.”
