Skagit FVRx takes a new approach to helping people live healthier lives by providing prescriptions for nourishing foods and supporting people on the path to well-being.
We have worked with healthcare providers, local stores, farmers markets, and nutrition experts to create a program that makes fruits and veggies a more affordable and tasty option for people in our communities. By giving individuals and families the power to buy and eat more fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables we can prevent and, in some cases, reverse risks for chronic disease.
And FVRx is not just about long-term health!
Eating more produce has helped past Skagit FVRx participants feel more satisfied in their lives overall and have enough energy for the day-to-day activities that matter to them.
Going into its fifth year, Skagit FVRx has become a popular and respected program in the valley. Read on to find out more about the program.
