Food Access

At Harbor Health, we believe that nothing should stand in the way of your health.  No one should have to choose between food and medicine.  Food is medicine and access to healthy, nutritious foods is essential to overall health.

Our food insecurity prevention programs work to increase access to affordable, healthy food for everyone in the communities we serve.
