The Graduate Medical Education Consortium is delighted to partner with the Feeding Southwest Virginia Mobile Market. GMEC has a grant from the National Institute for Food and Agriculture to work with nutrition needs in fixed income communities. The presence of the truck is part of these outreach efforts.
Doctors often tell patients to make better food choices. Given limited access to fresh produce with transportation, and with rising costs of fresh fruits and vegetables, this can be frustrating for both provider and patient. The Consortium is working with several innovations along these lines, and welcomes suggestions from the community.
EVERYONE is welcome to use the mobile market during its visit this coming Tuesday, per the flyer below. There are no requirements for participation and no registration is needed. We will see you at the church parking lot Tuesday.
