Health and Wellness
DICP's Veggie Rx program provides education about healthy foods for everyone in the family. Veggie Rx was originally designed for individuals diagnosed with health problems connected to obesity (things like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and breathing problems), but now serves youth and families as well.
Participants follow an 8-session program, which involves hands on food preparation, knife skills, healthy activities, tips on how to buy the most nutritious food on a budget, and how to use local resources to find healthier food. Participants receive incentives throughout the course, including a grocery store gift card at the end of classes. Participants also have access to DICP's Food Pantry and Care Navigation resources.
