Produce Prescription Program

A USDA grant-funded program, the Produce Prescription Program seeks to improve participants' dietary health through increased consumption of easily accessible healthy fruits and vegetables as part of an improved health strategy for low-income, food insecure patients.

Participants must be referred to Southeast Missouri Food Bank by area healthcare partners, assessed as food-insecure, 18 years of age, and a resident of SEMO Food Bank's service-area. Qualified participants must consent to participate in a health study as part of the program and agree to share basic health information such as body mass index, blood pressure, and blood sugar level to support research of the program. A Program Consent Form and Pre-Survey must be completed before participation can begin. Please read SEMO Food Bank's complete Produce Prescription Participant Explanation here.
