A new kind of food pantry opens at Ellis Health Center

Opened only a month now at the Ellis Health Center, the Food Farmacy, is more than just an average food pantry.  Their goal is to provide food for the short term, but a food education to last.

With a referral from the Ellis health system, you make an appointment to meet with one of the food councilors.  They take you through planning and diet needs for your condition and show you how to find food in your area.

You then grab a basket and with the counselor, you go shopping. Watch the video…
