The University of Virginia Children's Hospital is partnering with Local Food Hub to aid families who are food insecure in the Charlottesville area. In Charlottesville, 17.5% of families face food insecurity. Many of these families lack access to healthy food which can lead to obesity and chronic health conditions.
Local Food Hub established a program, Fresh Farmacy, where patients and their families are "prescribed" fresh food to be delivered to their residence.
We will identify families through the Pediatrics Clinic at UVA Health System who can benefit from fresh food.
Now more than ever, access to healthy food is vital. Please consider a donation to help local community members in need.
