Food Pharmacy

Evara Health believes that healthy food is medicine and offers access to fresh and healthy fruits, vegetables, food staples, and medically appropriate prepared meals in collaboration with Feeding Tampa Bay and funded by Humana. To be eligible for this program, patients are screened for food insecurity using the USDA Hunger Vital Sign screening questions. Patients identified as food insecure and diagnosed with chronic conditions of Diabetes, Hypertension, and/or High BMI are eligible for enrollment in the food intervention program. Enrolled patients receive a “food prescription” issued by an Evara Health provider. This prescription provides the patient with vouchers to use at the Evara Food Rx Pharmacy where staff assist the patient as they choose from a prescribed option set. In addition to our pantries, patients can also redeem their vouchers at Feeding Tampa Bay’s “Groceries on the Go” bus which parks at various locations throughout the week, including Pinellas Park and the Lealman Exchange.
