…Health Care Provider?
You can provide your patients with a Produce Rx to support their nutrition-related health needs.
If your patient is a participant in a Medicaid Pre-Paid Health Plan, then please ask their care manager to refer them to the Produce Rx program through the Healthy Opportunities Pilot.
If your patient does not qualify for the Healthy Opportunities Pilot, we can still support them through the Healthy Harvest Program. Request a Produce Rx box for them. We can support about 25 people each week with a Healthy Harvest Box delivered on Thursday or Friday.
…Farmer, Farmers Market, or other Produce Vendor?
Produce Prescriptions can be redeemed with farms, farmers markets, and other produce vendors. You accept the voucher as payment for the amount shown, the participants shops at your market or stand for produce, and you submit the voucher to us for reimbursement. Contact Sonya at email@example.com or (828)290-9717.
