Feed a Family for $1.50

Feed a Family for a $1.50

The Hennepin County Medical Center Therapeutic Food Pharmacy went into service three years ago. As the first food shelf located within a major Minnesota hospital (and the first in Minnesota), it has been so wildly successful that the program expanded into seven areas of the downtown campus, three satellite clinics, and now has a waiting list that is dependent upon future funds.

You may be asking yourself: What is their secret?

The Therapeutic Food Pharmacy has been able to provide a grocery bag of food for only $1.50. One bag contains enough food to feed a person for four days, and contents may include: fruit, vegetables, dried milk, bread, pasta, coffee, tea, noodles, crackers and an insert for SNAP food support. Serving an average of 1,500 families per month, all bags are accompanied by a nutritional educational conversation regarding healthy pediatric development, promotion of a healthy recovery, and well-balanced diet.

We need your help! We hope to be able to expand to other clinic sites, but require additional funds to do so. If you would like to make a financial contribution please click here then write in "Therapeutic Food Pharmacy" in the entry slot above your name. If you have questions or comments for us or are interested in becoming more involved please contact Linda Carson G7-222 at 873-4497.
