Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program

Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program

The Washington State Department of Health’s Fruit and Vegetable Prescription (FV Rx) Program works with health care centers in Washington to prescribe fruits and vegetables to patients who are food insecure. Patients receive between $250-$500 in paper vouchers over six months that are redeemable at Safeway stores for fresh, frozen, and canned items without added salt, sugar, or fat.
