Prescription Produce Program
This program's purpose is to provide access to fresh produce during the Summer to our adult and pediatric patients who have prediabetes, diabetes, BMI >95%, substance use disorders, or those who screen for food insecurity. Every Friday from June to October qualified participants are able to receive a free bag of produce along with delicious recipes that they can make at home. It is a great way to help our community increase their fruit and vegetable intake and improve their health.
If you do not qualify, no worries! You still may receive a bag from our Market by purchasing one for $5 or redeeming your WIC coupons or Senior Farmer Market coupons. The bag includes similar produce items as what our patients receive and comes with recipes, too.
For more information about the program or market, please contact Elizabeth Hassinger at (217) 877-9117 x1121 or Amy Carie at (217) 877-9117 x1120.
