Growing wellness

Filling food prescriptions


When illness changes our bodies, it also changes our lives. We may find ourselves hungry for the strength and wellness to play with our kids, return to work, pay the bills and make our mark in the world. FOODRx delivers tailored food prescriptions and education so people get fed, get well and get back to living. The price tag is closer to what you’d see at your local market than your local pharmacy. Side effects may include increased drive, improved rest, better living and a healthier community. 

Some Minnesota medical providers are writing new kinds of prescriptions for patients battling chronic health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. In an innovative twist, the state’s largest food bank, Second Harvest Heartland, is filling them.
