In my work as a physician and with my weight management patients and families the Local Foods Connection has been instrumental in helping my patients get access to nutritious food that helps heal their metabolism and chronic disease. The effectiveness of this program can be seen in my patients that do not have continued access to fruit and vegetables during the winter months in that their weight and chronic diseases such as diabetes have worsened without the access to fresh fruits and vegetables this program provides. Often times these patients are on the line of having to decide between food or another needed resource. They often make too much for food assistance from the state and too little to afford the food that they need to heal their metabolism and health. This program helps fill that gap in an effective and meaningful way.
