Produce Prescriptions

Reinvestment Partners currently offers multiple produce prescription programs in North Carolina, collectively called RP Rx.

In North Carolina, food insecurity affects 1 in 7 people. People living with food insecurity also experience higher rates of diet-related chronic illness. To address the double burden of hunger and poor health, healthcare providers are looking for ways to connect their patients with accessible and healthy food.

In response we created RPRx, a produce prescription program that works for providers, patients, and retailers. RPRx is a cost-effective, efficient way for providers to offer fruits and vegetables to their patients.
