“Brittain began the program VeggieRx through a partnership with FoodShare and Feed and Seed, a Greenville based food hub. As part of the program, patients at the Clemson Health Clinic at Walhalla with certain health markers are eligible to receive two free produce boxes each month. Clinical measures such as blood sugar (A1C), height, weight, blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) are taken before each patient’s first box and again at the conclusion of the six-month program. The boxes come with a variety of local, in-season fruits and vegetables along with recipe cards relevant to the contents of the box. Once a month, Brittain provides a cooking demonstration and nutrition class to participants that covers everything from reading a nutrition label to building a healthy plate.”
