Produce for Better Health Program

The Produce for Better Health (PBH) Program, grant-funded by Anthem BCBS, provides two boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables per month. Each box contains 14 pounds of produce with three fruits and three vegetables.

Participants must report their weight and blood pressure monthly, fill out a separate application and complete quarterly satisfaction surveys to remain enrolled.
