Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) and Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) supported by a nearly $300,000 grant from the AllOne Foundation will initiate a “Food Prescription Program” later this month. The program, funded for three years, will first be offered to patients of the Carbondale Family Health Center with expectations of extending to additional WMCHC Family Health Centers in the Honesdale area within the near future.  The mission of the Food Prescription Program is to provide healthful and nutritious meals to adult patients diagnosed with Diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and have identified themselves as experiencing food insecurity.
