How does it work?

  • You must be enrolled in a participating Diabetes Prevention Program and attend events to be eligible for the Farmhouse to Your House program.

  • Over the next year, you will receive up to 26 boxes of fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs direct from the farm worth over $25 each. (During the program.)

  • The first month is free of charge. Afterwards, each box will cost $7.50 or $15 a month. WIC and SNAP may be used to cover this cost.

  • You will have DPP classes where life coaches will teach you about the benefits of adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet and making healthy lifestyle changes. Class will be once a week for the first 16 weeks, every other week for the next 2 months, and once a month for the last 6 months.

  • Produce boxes can be picked up where your DPP classes are held. Ask your DPP Life Coach about delivery schedules.

What's in the Box?

A variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs are sorted into boxes by local farms and distributed at DPP locations. Each box will contain 6 to 8 different types of seasonal produce, enough to feed a family of 4. Depending on what’s in season, each box will contain one or more of the following:

Of course, if you don’t have easy access to fresh, healthy foods, it’s harder to make healthy choices. Novo Nordisk, Mississippi Diabetes Prevention Programs, Foot Print Farms, The Garden Farmacy, and Nick Wallace Culinary and Creativity Kitchen have come together to help you and your family, eat healthier.
