Fruit and Vegetable Rx Program

This program was established to help diabetic patients control and manage their condition to drive down healthcare costs and to help patients live healthier lives. Participants complete a seven week class about nutrition and diabetes management. They are given a bag of groceries each week with fresh fruits and vegetables. They continue to receive free produce for the next year if they attend monthly programs.  Doctors write a prescription for this program as they would for any medication.


This is what we were meant to do.

Join our mission to help the poor and underserved be well.
