GRAND OPENING of our Food Pharmacy!

The GRAND OPENING of our new Food Pharmacy, was a huge hit!

The Pharmacy is conveniently located at Samaritan House’s Redwood City Free Healthcare Clinic, so patients can fill their prescriptions on site. This innovative new program would not have been possible without the extraordinary collaboration with our partners at Sequoia Healthcare District and Second Harvest Food Bank.

The Food Pharmacy is where low income patients with diabetes can “fill’ prescriptions for free nutritious food. The Food Pharmacy is thought to the first one of it’s kind in California.

FullSizeRenderSecond Harvest will keep the Food Pharmacy stocked with fresh produce and other healthy foods and the Sequoia Healthcare District has provided partial funding.
