We truly believe in the old saying, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” The Food Pharmacy program is a testament of what we can achieve by “going together”!
Alongside our partners at University of Utah Health, the Utah Food Bank, and Smith’s Grocery, we helped establish a food prescription program that aims to increase patients’ access to healthy foods and nutrition education.
The program leverages food as medicine in the healthcare setting, where eligible University of Utah Health patients receive food prescriptions directly from their providers. Patients redeem these prescriptions at the mobile Food Pharmacy trailer where they’re able to choose from a variety of foods, including dairy, vegetable, fruit, protein and grain options.
We’re excited to see the program grow and are blessed to have partners that share our vision to catalyze positive change in our communities!
