D.C.'s health care system

Connect with D.C. Food is Medicine

Food Is Medicine interventions, like DC Greens’ award-winning Produce Rx program, use food-based interventions to prevent, treat, and manage chronic, diet-related illnesses.   

This approach increases access to critical nutrition through the health care system, ensuring individuals have access to a spectrum of nutrition services that meet their individual health and wellness needs.   

DC Greens is a proud leader in the Food Is Medicine movement. Learn more about our work to expand access to this transformative approach to food equity work.
