GEORGIA FOOD FOR HEALTH (GF4H)
in partnership with
Good Samaritan Health Center
Remember the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”?
For some families, a low income and lack of easy access or transportation to farmers markets keeps healthy food like apples out of reach. Access to nutritionally sound foods is integral to your overall health and increased access has been shown to help decrease obesity, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.
The Georgia Food For Health (GF4H) Program promotes affordable access to fruits and vegetables and healthy eating in under-served communities through partnerships with healthcare providers, community organizations and fresh produce retailers. Through the program, healthcare providers give families innovative prescriptions that can be spent on fruits and vegetables at participating farmers markets.
