Better Patient Access to Fresh Produce
Beginning September 28, IU Health’s Garden on the Go van will expand its route to include stops at two HealthNet locations. The van will bring affordable fruits and vegetables year-round to Southeast Community Services, 901 Shelby St.—the home of HealthNet Southeast Health & Dental Center—at 1 p.m. on Thursdays. It also will stop at the Far Eastside Neighborhood Center, the home of HealthNet Eastside Health Center, at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays. The program’s goal is to get more produce into the hands of those without access to convenient and affordable fruits and vegetables.
