Fresh Bucks and Produce Rx is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) Program.  The Marion County Public Health Department, Chronic Disease Department is the central administrator of Fresh Bucks and Produce Rx.
