The Frontier Veggie Rx (FVRx) Program is a healthy eating initiative that supports patients and their families in Gilliam, Harney, Sherman, and Wheeler counties.

Through the voucher program, individuals meet with their prescriber to discuss household eating and food shopping habits. If eligible, people may receive prescriptions to buy healthy fruits and vegetables at participating stores or farmers’ markets.

The Frontier Veggie Rx program improves the overall health of an individual and community by addressing food insecurity issues, working with local vendors to provide a greater variety and quantity of fresh fruit and vegetables to community members.
