Fruit & Vegetable Prescription Programs

Join the Food and Health Network of South Central New York and VINES on Thursday, November 17th for a half day workshop with Wholesome Wave to explore the impacts of Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Programs and local opportunities. Fruit & Vegetable Prescription programs enable innovative partnerships between healthcare, retail and agriculture, and community-based organizations to increase access to healthy, fresh, and affordable fruits and vegetables. Through these programs, patients are empowered to make healthy food choices and prevent/manage diet-related health conditions, retailers and local farms receive direct economic benefits, and patient-provider relationships are deepened. The forum will also include a discussion on opportunities for implementing programs in the region.

Registration: $15/person
Registration is required.
