Washington, District of Columbia, USA
MissionDC Greens is a Black-led, multiracial organization that uses advocacy, food education, and upstream community health interventions to build a more just and resilient food system. Our innovative food access program Produce Rx advances a "food as medicine" approach. We equip medical professionals to prescribe fresh fruits and veggies to patients with low incomes managing diet-related illnesses like diabetes, pre-diabetes and hypertension.
In 2022 we opened our educational farm and wellness space The Well, serving the Congress Heights, Washington Highlands and Bellevue neighborhoods of Southeast DC. DC Greens' vision for health equity is a city where each one of us has the ability to shape the policies and institutions that have an impact on our wellbeing.
