This week, KRON4 is honoring food banks around the Bay Area and one in particular is teaching people how to use food as medicine. 

It’s a creative way to introduce healthy living to low income participants that are prescribed to a pantry through a direct partnership between the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank and Clinic. 

Michaela Moss, a food pharmacy health educator said, ” our goal here is to provide fresh fruits and vegetables, proteins and greens, in this fun outdoor environment and connect them with to some healthy recipes as well.”

The food pharmacy allows patients to pick fresh produce and learn a variety of healthy recipes in a 12-week course.
