We’ve heard it a thousand times growing up, “you have to finish your veggies before you can leave the dinner table!” Or even, “an apple a day will keep the doctor away.” Well, as annoying as it was, our parents were right – fruits and vegetables are a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle. Not only are they healthy food options, but they also can help with digestion, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and even prevent certain types of cancer.
Our friends at Virtua Health are passionate about the power of food. And over the past few years, their Eat Well program has provided affordable and healthy eats to those who need it most. Throughout our community, there are so many people who lack access to healthy foods. But, thanks to generous donors, the Eat Well program takes steps toward addressing food insecurity.
In honor of June being National Fruit and Veggies Month, learn all about Virtua’s Eat Well Program.
