Mustard Seed Community Farm, Farm to Clinic

Primary Health Care, Inc (PHC) is a federally funded health clinic in Ames dedicated to serving the medically insured, uninsured and underinsured with their health care needs.

This farm season (May-October), in cooperation with Mustard Seed Farm, PHC is offering Farm to Clinic. Clinic families receive shares of farm produce, including vegetables and fruit. Pregnant and nursing women as well as individuals with diabetes and other chronic health conditions are encouraged to enroll. Participating families, at no cost, pick up their farm share at the clinic and at the same time receive recipe ideas, nutrition information and can engage in live waiting room demonstrations on how to use the food provided in their box that week.

PHC is grateful to Mustard Seed Farm and to Wheatsfield Co-op for their support and enthusiasm for this project. If you have questions or would like to help, please contact Miguel Biott at [email protected] or Leysan Mubarakshina at [email protected]
