Food Assistance

Jefferson Healthcare’s VegRx Program

A pilot program in partnership with Jefferson County Farmer’s Markets (JCFM), families are screened for hunger during Well Child Checks.  A family is eligible if they answer YES to the question, “Do you ever worry your family will go hungry?”  If an eligible family is interested they can receive a voucher, worth $10/month for 12-months, redeemable at the JCFM for fruits and veggies.  Current funding will fund about 50 families.  Call Susi (x4863)  in Primary Care for more information or to walk you through the process
