FoodRX Program in South Carolina is Feeding the Body and Soul
FoodShare Greenville believes healthy food could be the best medicine for the body and soul. Every other Tuesday, volunteers for the South Carolina nonprofit assemble and distribute fresh produce boxes at drive-by locations in Greenville County. The produce boxes valued at $30 are offered at a discounted price to their neighbors facing food insecurity.
Noticing a correlation between access to healthy foods and chronic illnesses in the community, the organization expanded the FoodShare model in August 2022 when it launched the holistic FoodRx Healthy Eating Prescription Program.
