BLOOMINGTON, Minn. —HealthPartners delivered more than 570,000 pounds of fresh produce to senior Minnesotans last year through its partnership with FarmboxRx. The health system introduced the benefit in January 2022 to its Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO) (HMO SNP) members.
Since then, 2,500 eligible members have used the benefit to receive two free boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables delivered to their homes each month.
“Forty percent of our eligible MSHO members currently receive this benefit, making it one of our most popular MSHO supplemental benefits,” said Jennifer Clelland, HealthPartners vice president of government programs. “This partnership has removed barriers to accessing nutritious foods, which further strengthens our commitment to supporting the health and well-being of our members.”
