Rx for FARMERS' MARKET

In partnership with Open Door Community Health Centers, a “Farmers’ Market Prescription” program was created in 2013. This program was developed to provide low income and CalFresh eligible Open Door Health Center patients whose health may benefit from eating more fresh produce with free vouchers to be spent on fruits and veggies at one of our farmers’ markets. 

This program was inspired by the research and work done by the organization Wholesome Wave, a non-profit organization based out of Connecticut that has developed many innovative food affordability projects.  In future years, we have plans to continue to develop and expand on our Rx for Farmers’ Market program.


This program is also made possible in part by the support by the Humboldt County Health and Human Services Social Services Department though a CalFresh Outreach and Promotion grant.
