            There are areas all across the country that are “food deserts” where fresh produce is generally unavailable and processed foods abound. Wholesome Wave’s program working with local physicians and health centers offers one approach to changing this. The fruit and vegetable prescription program is making it possible for those in poorer communities to make better choices in feeding their families. It is interesting to note that several areas in Great Britain are also experimenting with food and gardening prescriptions for improving health–another aspect of person-centered medicine. Thanks to Modern Farmer for this article.
