¡Más Fresco! Plus is a partnership between UC San Diego Center for Community Health under ACTRI, San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, San Diego farmers, grocery stores and community-based organizations across San Diego County. San Diego County community members who enroll in ¡Más Fresco! Plus will receive a box of farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, from a local San Diego farm, delivered to their home.
If you enrolled before September 1, 2023, you will receive deliveries about twice a month for 12 months until you receive 24 deliveries total. This 12-month program has reached capacity and is closed.
If you enrolled after September 1, 2023, you will receive deliveries weekly for about 6 months until you receive 24 deliveries total.
The goals of ¡Más Fresco! Plus are to:
Increase access to and consumption of healthy foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, among community members who are experiencing health disparities, including food insecurity and diet related chronic disease.
Improve nutrition and health status among program participants.
This program is part of a University of California San Diego (UCSD) research study that aims to learn how nutrition incentives provided through ¡Más Fresco! Plus affect access to healthy foods, and how they help people consume more fruits and vegetables for better health.
As part of the enrollment process, you will be asked for your consent to participate in this research study. You will also be provided the opportunity to participate in a survey upon enrollment. After 3 months of your participation, some participants may be contacted by Más Fresco Plus staff about an opportunity to take a follow-up survey. This will help us learn more about the impact of the program and how it may help participants access and eat healthy foods, including fruits and vegetables, to improve health.

The funding available for this program enables us to provide benefits to a certain number of community members at a time. Once we reach the maximum number of participants, all funding for this benefit will have been fully allocated and no additional enrollments will be accepted.
