*This summer of 2018 Cornell Cooperative Extension ushers the South Central NY Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program into Delaware County. Designed by the Rural Health Network of South Central NY and implemented in Broome County in 2017, the program exists as a strategy to help prevent and manage chronic diet-related diseases by increasing affordability and access to nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms.
Focused on Medicaid patients, participants can be referred to this program through Registered Dietitians and Wellness Coordinators at UHS Walton / Delaware Valley. Enrollment gains the patient regular meetings with a Registered Dietitian, Wellness Coordinator, or Community Health Worker over a six to eight month time period. These meetings will provide participants with their prescription in the form of vouchers. Patients then use these vouchers as their method of payment at Cornell Cooperative Extension’s farmers’ market. Vendors are reimbursed after turning in voucher and log information into the Rural Health Network of SCNY. Prescription includes only the purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables from participating markets and stands.
