YOUR HEALTH matters
Whatcom Veggie RX is the partnership of Bellingham Food Bank, the Community Food Co-op, the Community Health Plan of Washington, and your medical provider. We aim to help individuals living with diabetes eat more fresh produce as part of their personal health plan. Our program involves educating patients about nutrition and wellness and helping them access local, organic produce from neighborhood markets.

COMMUNITY HEALTH PLAN OF WASHINGTON
A local, not-for-profit health plan, Community Health Plan of Washington is committing to helping people access quality health care.
COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS
Community clinics are committed to health care for everyone, regardless of ability to pay. They are community members and they serve community members.
Our goals together
We created Veggie RX with your health needs in mind. Better health starts with eating right and fueling your body with the nutrients it needs. Fresh, organic produce can be expensive and many families have difficulty getting fresh food on a regular basis. Our goal is help you get the fresh foods you need to manage your diabetes and prevent further health complications. By educating you on nutrition and giving you the tools to make healthier decisions, we hope to build a strong, healthy community for everyone.
