A New Fresh Food Pharmacy Opens

The Geisinger Fresh Food Pharmacy is stocked with healthy pantry staples and specializes in helping Type 2 diabetes.

"Folks, good morning, and welcome to the ribbon cutting and opening of the Fresh Food Pharmacy," announced Sam Balukoff, the MC at Geisinger Health System's launch of a new food pharmacy located on the grounds of a hospital in central Pennsylvania. 

The Geisinger Fresh Food Pharmacy is stocked with healthy pantry staples like oatmeal and peanut butter as well as fresh produce, and specializes in helping Type 2 diabetes in a pilot program aimed at getting them to change their diets and lose weight. They receive free groceries of healthy foods every week. Currently there are 180 patients involved in the program.
