Last week we kicked off our first of many food distributions to seniors participating in our Healthy Senior Living Initiative – Food Rx Program. This program offers free health screenings in partnership with the HUDA Clinic which will inform a food prescription aimed at addressing obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, and diabetes. The food prescription will be filled with produce and other healthy food choices by our partners Eastern Market Partnership and Forgotten Harvest.
Matrix staff visited the homes of some of our participating seniors with boxes of fresh produce and other food and delivered it directly to their doorstep – completely free!
