Answer yes to one or both of the following questions:

Using food for prevention and treatment of disease is an idea that has been around for many years. New information comes out every day showing that a healthy diet can help people achieve and maintain good health. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to purchase healthy foods with today’s increasing grocery prices. Not only can it be expensive, it can also be difficult to know what type of foods to eat and how to prepare them.
Food is medicine at Family Health Services is a 12-month program; participants receive 2 boxes of fresh produce each month and work with a dietitian and their primary care providers to address any health conditions where food is part of the management.
