VeggieRx

VeggieRx is a fresh produce prescription program that improves healthy eating habits for individuals experiencing food insecurity and diagnosed with diet-modifiable disease. This program aims to increase the access to and consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits by participants who receive vouchers for produce as well as nutrition education.

In 2018, participants ate more vegetables and fruits during and after the program. Experienced food insecurity was reduced following the program. Participants felt more confident in their personal ability to stretch meals using fresh food and shop for produce on a budget. $11,883 was spent on produce to local farms.
