The idea behind the Food RX program is to use "food as medicine" to manage or prevent chronic illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension. This client specific program is a joint coalition created with Abbott Fund, Public Health Institute and Community Medical Centers. Our Nutriton Educators hold nutrition workshops and cooking classes for members enrolled in the program. A food box filled with nutrient-dense food items is then delivered to the member's doorstep. Members can join a LIVE cooking demonstration to learn about how to cook the food they have been given in their box.
The FoodRX program if offered thru Community Medical Centers to those clients who show pre-existing medical conditions. If you are a member of Community Medical Centers you may qualify to participate in this FREE informational program.
