This is Ralph ...

Ralph has been gaining a lot of weight and at a recent doctor’s appointment he was told that he risked developing diabetes if he didn’t change his diet. He eats a lot of processed food because it is affordable. He’d like to eat better, but doesn’t have the money.

What should Ralph do?

What should Ralph do?

  • A

    Buy reduced sodium frozen meals and hope that helps.

  • B

    Ignore his doctor’s advice and continue eating, eventually developing diabetes and having to pay for costly prescriptions.

What happened?

Through a local agency, Ralph was directed to a United Way funded program that provides boxes of fresh, local produce along with recipes for a low price. Ralph was able to improve his diet by incorporating these fresh fruits and vegetables.
