After a full year of programming, DC Greens’ Children and Families Produce Rx pilot has ended. We’ve gained incredible knowledge and insight from this pilot year. Our Produce Rx team surveyed more than 100 participants on how the program impacted their lives. In that survey, we learned that 96% tried new fruits and vegetables during the program. And 90% of respondents shared that the funds they received in Produce Rx freed up other resources to spend on important things like rent, utilities, and other household expenses.  

DC Greens is excited to continue analyzing the data from this pilot so we can continue to improve the program. Stay tuned for our upcoming final report!
