The Produce Rx Program is designed to integrate healthy food access into the healthcare system. It allows medical professionals to prescribe fresh fruit and vegetables to patients experiencing diet-related chronic illnesses and participating patients receive a weekly coupon to spend on produce, as well as wrap-around nutrition education. The Program Manager is responsible for leading the implementation, management, monitoring and evaluation of the Produce Rx program. Since 2012, DC Greens has implemented a Produce Rx program in collaboration with health care centers and food retail. Through this program we aim to integrate produce prescriptions into the health care payment system. Our approach and partnerships have evolved over time towards this goal and the person in this role will be responsible for continuing the work to match program implementation with our policy goals in collaboration with DC Greens Programs and Policy Departments. The Produce Rx Program Manager reports to the Programs Director and manages 2 or more program support staff.
You are an ideal candidate if you are creative; well-versed in program management, monitoring and evaluation; adept at cross-sectoral collaboration; and committed to building a just food system for the people of D.C.
