Food Rx

The Food Rx program was a project run in collaboration between FoodShare and the University Health Network (UHN), supported by the McConnell FoundationMedavie and Arrell Family Foundation, aimed at addressing food needs that were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic by connecting folks with a ‘prescription’ for regular home delivery of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as regular wellness check-ins from FoodShare staff.

The Food Rx program has now ended. To find local services, including emergency food sources in your area, please call the City on 211 or go to
