Fresh Food Farmacy

Fresh Food Farmacy

The Fresh Food Farmacy’s objective is to provide nutritious food and education to empower patients with the ability to make healthy decisions for their bodies. With healthy food, diabetes education and support, TNLC provides our patients with a special kind of medicine that doesn’t come from a bottle.

Food-insecure individuals with A1C levels greater than 8.0 are referred to the food pantry and are taught which food to choose and which to avoid, health coaching services, recipes and a referral to TNLC. We will then provide enough food to make ten meals a week that will support a healthy lifestyle. If you have questions, please contact the office at 570-244-8838.
