Food Rx Programme to the rescue amid inflation

The Food Rx programme, a joint collaborative of FoodShare Toronto and the University of Health Network, is all set to aid Canadians facing food insecurity amid price hikes by delivering a prescribed box containing fresh fruits and veggies. After the pandemic, one out of every 10 Canadians struggles to buy fresh food. Therefore, the objective of this programme is to assist individuals in eating healthy food. Every two weeks, the box of food will be delivered to the participants of the Food Rx Programme. The number of participants is more than 200.
