NPPC Policy Workgroup expressed support for investment in the food system, made recommendations for PPR in the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program in a letter to Secretary Vilsack

As described in our statement of support of the June 1st announcement, the National Produce Prescription Collaborative (NPPC) congratulates you and the entire team at USDA on the robust and immensely important announcement of the Framework for Shoring Up the Food Supply Chain and Transforming the Food System to be Fairer, More Competitive, More Resilient.

Our coalition comprises dozens of Produce Prescription (PRx) program implementers, doctors, payers, researchers, and funders, most of whom are former and current FINI and GusNIP implementing partners who have been championing the power of produce as a clinical treatment since 2019. We maintain a shared goal to establish PRx as a powerful treatment tool for prevention and intervention for diet-related disease by expanding utilization of this effective model in healthcare and food retail systems.
