In 2012, DC Greens launched a Fruit and Vegetable Prescription program in collaboration with Unity Health Care and Wholesome Wave. Since then, more than 200 at-risk DC residents have received prescriptions from their doctors for free farmers’ market produce. These prescriptions can be filled at participating “farmacies,” expanding access to affordable nutrition. With close tracking on both the health center and market side, the Prescription Program provides essential data on the value of nutrition-based health interventions.
