Prescription for Health

Prescription for Health

Our Prescription for Health program connects patients to their local farmers markets though their medical clinics. Health care providers refer their patients to the Prescription for Health program by writing “prescriptions”, in the form of a referral, for their patients to eat more fruits and vegetables. Upon enrollment in the program, the participant gets tokens in their enrollment packet and is able to spend those on fruits and vegetables at their local farmers market.

The program was piloted in 2008 and funding has been generously provided by Trinity Health since 2016.
