Get Healthy, Live Well

Food As Medicine

Food As Medicine, from Tanner’s Get Healthy, Live Well, provides education, insight — and boxes of free, fresh and healthy food — to our neighbors who struggle with controlling diabetes and the cost of healthy foods.

With a physician’s referral, participants gain access to:

  • Healthy cooking classes
  • Tips on purchasing healthier foods on a budget
  • Advice on meal planning
  • More intensive education on diabetes and blood sugar
  • And boxes of free, fresh, nutritious food

The Healthy Food Farmacy

A unique feature of the Food As Medicine program, the Healthy Food Farmacy provides participants with boxes of fresh, nutritious food at no cost.

Through a collaboration with the Atlanta Community Foodbank, program participants can “shop” twice a month with Get Healthy, Live Well’s specially trained team members. Our team can help participants choose healthier options, plan meals and learn healthier ways to prepare them.

The Healthy Food Farmacy also offers space for lifestyle and cooking classes, diabetes education and more, helping you get a handle on your diabetes.
