FARMacy: Prescription for Produce
The FARMacy program started in 2016 with a goal to provide access to healthy food to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.
For the past 6 years, FARMacy has been promoting health food as medicine by providing "prescriptions" for produce. FARMacy works in collaboration with local healthcare facilities and farmers to provide healthy foods as well as nutrition education. This program currently serves 23 counties through 25 sites around the state of West Virginia!
