GrowNYC partnered with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and four independent pharmacies to pilot a pharmacy-based fruit and vegetable prescription program. The program is funded by a Food Insecurity and Nutrition Initiative (FINI) Grant from the United States Department of Agriculture and aims to increase fruit and vegetable consumption among SNAP participants. To participate in the program patients must be 18 or older, take medication for high blood pressure, and use an EBT card for SNAP. Each month that a patient fills a prescription for high blood pressure medication at a participating pharmacy, they can receive a “prescription” worth $30 in Health Bucks redeemable at a Greenmarket location partnered with the pharmacy.
