Fresh Food Farmacy

Our Fresh Food Farmacy Program provides patients and their families with freshly harvested produce from our farms, paired with cooking demonstrations, nutrition information, health and wellness classes, and more.

We partner with local health and food access providers to expand access to healthy, culturally affirming food for the patients they serve. The program enables families to develop a deeper understanding of the direct connection between diet, nutrition, and health outcomes, while sharing skills and resources to help them integrate healthier foods into their diet using simple and accessible recipes.

Our current partners include La Rabida Children's Hospital, TCA Health, and Common Threads.
