Food Pharmacy

At United Way, we believe that every family should have access to healthy foods, particularly fruits, and vegetables.


With the passing of the federal Omnibus Appropriations bill, Congress approved a new round of Community Project Funding/Congressional Directed Spending which includes funding for United Way of Western Connecticut to launch a “food pharmacy”, a wrap-around nutrition program in partnership with Nuvance Health. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting new initiative coming in Spring 2023!
