Serving 348,000 residents in southeastern Michigan, the agency has piloted its Prescription for Health program in four Ypsilanti health clinics to provide low-income clients with nutrition instructions and “tokens” for purchasing fresh produce at a local farmers market. Our two-year grant is being used to expand the pilot program to four additional health clinics over the next two years.
