Expanding access to free fresh fruits and vegetables for those in need
Eating fruits and vegetables is essential to our diets and plays an important role in maintaining and improving health and wellness. They have the power to preserve our lives. But for some, it can be challenging to buy the right amount of fresh produce to fuel good health. That’s why Parkview Health developed the VeggieRx program.
About the program
VeggieRx is a produce program proven to boost fruit and vegetable consumption for residents of Allen County who are in need and experiencing diet-related health issues.
The USDA grant-funded initiative allows those meeting health and financial eligibility requirements to purchase $50 in fresh produce each month for six months and attend four nutrition education sessions with a Parkview registered dietitian.
You must have a referral from your healthcare provider to participate.
