Nashville General-Meharry Market
Good Food for Good People - The Produce Prescription
How does it work?
Good Food for Good People gathers the best seasonal and local food available and presents it market style for all community members to enjoy. SNAP cards as well as debit and credit are welcome. Discounts are offered based on need - real simple screening on site - folks can pre-order at the GoodFoodBuyersClub.com website and grab and go if their time is tight --- or people can hang out and enjoy the company, the music and the conversations. Good Food will bring to campus fresh fruit and vegetable (including some of the highest nutrition delivery items), cage free eggs, local simple and exotic cheeses, on-farm butchered pastured meats (chicken, beef, pork, lamb), locally canned vegetables, relishes and chow chows, salsa, maple syrup, honey, granolas, organic flours and pancake mixes and more.
Good Food Family Farmers locally grow their food by organic methods.
Super Good Food is selected by our dietitian for year around nutrition.
Love Local Food is grown conventionally within 200 miles of Nashville.
The market is open to patients, staff, students, faculty and the visiting broader community. Students are welcome to volunteer for food shares and guest cooks are welcome to sample items and share recipes. Live acoustic music offered in exchange for food shares will also be solicited and welcome.
