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 write "prescriptions" for their patients to eat more fruits and vegetables, and patients redeem their prescriptions at the farmers market.

The program was piloted in 2008 and funding has been generously provided by Saint Joseph Mercy Health System since 2016.
