One Man's Vision Leads to a Unique Partnership with Food Banks Across the Country and Watertree Health
Date:7/18/2014

NEW YORK, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brian Chavez has been a part of Watertree Health since it began in 2010.  The company is focused on providing solutions to health care needs.

Today, Brian is responsible for the unique partnership developed between Watertree Health and the Food Banks.  His strong relationship with Terri Drefke, the CEO of the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, opened the door to a turnkey program that now involves more than a dozen Food Banks across the country, with more signing up. 

"When something as simple as needing to fill a prescription, could throw a family's budget completely off, then bringing these two organizations with complimentary missions together makes absolute sense," he says.

The program is quite simple, each time a script is discounted using a free Food Bank branded Prescription Discount Card, administered by Watertree Health, the Food Bank organization receives a donation. Research findings have proven that individuals who are food insecure are more likely to suffer with chronic diseases.  So distributing the card to clients serviced through the Food Banks has the dual function of providing critical funding to the organization while ensuring and promoting healthier communities.

According to Brian, "The program allows the organization to put funds where they are needed most."  Not only are the funds that are donated helping to feed the 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 2 children who are faced with hunger in his state, the program is also helping folks facing hard times in places like New Orleans, Tulsa, and Albuquerque, just to name a few.

Anyone can use the company's free prescription discount card.  It's not just for people without insurance. Though it is hard to say that discounts will be the same at every pharmacy and on every prescription
