A new program called ‘Fresh RX for Moms’ is for pregnant women who are on Medicaid and seeing a doctor or a certified nurse-midwife.
The Community Farmers Market in Bowling Green began the program on July 7. The goal is to provide fresh produce for pregnant women so they maintain good nutrition during their pregnancy.
Community Farmers Market spokeswoman Nikki Gray said it’s a quick and simple process for women to join the program.
“All they’ll need to do is come to the market, show us their ID, as well as their Medicaid card, fill out a short informational survey and then from there they get $20 in tokens each week to spend on fresh food at the market.”
