Rutland Regional hosts VeggieVanGo® Program

Rutland, Vermont: Rutland Regional Medical Center will host this month’s VeggieVanGo program on Thursday, January 24 from 9-10am in the parking lot by the CVPS/Leahy Community Health Education Center at Rutland Regional.

The Vermont Foodbank’s VeggieVanGo program provides FREE fresh, healthy veggies and fruits for low income Vermonters. They also work with physicians and medical staff to identify patients and families who are experiencing hunger and “prescribe” fresh fruits and vegetables for a more nutritious diet. Along with the healthy, fresh food, VeggieVanGo volunteers and staff also offer cooking demos and taste tests of the vegetables available, paired with recipes and cooking tips.

For more information, contact the Vermont Foodbank at 1.800.585.2265 or email info@vtfoodbank.org
