The Lempert Report
February 17, 2023

Food Lion has partnered for a new food pharmacy program. It's in pilot form, but basically what they're doing is they're launching this new program that provides access to nutritious food and healthy eating choices. Basically they're working with Novant Health, their dietitians and staff to determine which patients shoppers qualified to distribute nearly 3,000 boxes from Food Lion that contain shelf stable and nutritious food. What's in the box? 

Sally: So these boxes include milk, oatmeal, tuna, black beans, no sodium vegetables. Those are in cans and pasta with sauce. And they're also including information about the nutritious products that are rated by the Guiding Star system that are available at Food Lion.
