Turning Theory Into Action: Food’s Healing Capabilities

The Root Cause Coalition is inspired by the work our Partners and Members do to address health equity in their communities. Houston Food Bank’s Food Rx, or food prescription, program allows individuals access to designated markets where they can select 30 pounds of free fruits and vegetables and other healthy items twice a month. This program helps alleviate financial stress from grocery costs so that clients may focus on how to better maintain their health.

In this video, a participant of Food Rx shares how healthy food the program provides allows her to manage her health condition.
