NY Fresh Rx Produce Prescription Program

NY Fresh Rx Produce Prescription Program

What is NY Fresh Rx?

NY Fresh Rx is a produce prescription program designed to help participants improve their overall health and well-being through increased consumption of fruits and vegetables. We will provide FREE boxes of fruits and vegetables to participants. What's more, all of the produce is grown locally, right here on Long Island, NY, which helps support our local food system.

In addition to produce, NY Fresh Rx provides support services to help participants make the lifestyle changes necessary to improve their health. Programs include nutrition education, chronic disease prevention and self-management workshops, culinary medicine and cooking classes, recipes, newsletters, and individual nutrition counseling services.
