Where are we now?
The Fresh Food Farmacy has positively impacted the lives of nearly 250 patients and their family members in Northumberland County. By participating in our classes, patients realized they weren't alone and the challenges they face are the same ones facing many of their neighbors.
Our patients are seeing significant HBA1C improvements and are better able to manage their diabetes with fewer complications. They're able to provide their families with nutritious meals they prepare themselves. In addition, most participants started exercising and report they're more involved in managing their own health and the health of their families. The most profound finding, however, is that by providing healthy food and continual education, several participants have been able to reduce or even eliminate their diabetes medications.
