Earlier this month, Hannah Dakin, our Operations Project Manager, and Vida Cunningham, Public Health Specialist from Lambeth Public Health, visited our Lambeth Fruit & Veg on Prescription Project, which is funded by Lambeth Council and Impact on Urban Health.
A.T. Beacon Project are our local delivery partner for this project in Lambeth and run community well-being hubs in places such as shops, barber shops, and local churches, for people least likely to engage with formal health services.
As part of our Fruit & Veg on Prescription Project, people in the community who the Beacon Project support and who also have health conditions that can be improved by eating a healthy diet, are now receiving weekly Rose Vouchers for Fruit & Veg. Hannah and Vida visited a Rose Vouchers distribution session at St. John’s Church Angell Town, to see the project in action.
The Beacon Project has done an incredible job of implementing the Fruit & Veg on Prescription Project in Lambeth. With nearly 50 participants already enrolled, the project is making a real difference in the lives of local people. By increasing access to healthy food, the project is helping to combat food insecurity and improving the health outcomes of some of Lambeth’s most vulnerable residents.
