VeggieRx, a Produce Prescription Program

Produce prescription programs (e.g., VeggieRx) are a medical treatment or preventative service for patients with diet-related health conditions or risks. Programs such as VeggieRx can improve food security, lower chronic disease risks, and provide access to local, nutrient-dense produce to program participants. The model for this vegetable prescription program pilot was farm-direct, where produce was grown at the Farm at the Arb or procured from local farmers and given directly to patients at clinic pick-up sites. Call River Valley Health Services if access to this program can help your diet-related health condition 952-567-8205
