50 percent of our healthcare spending is driven by unhealthy lifestyles, according to the Centers for Disease Control. As a result, many companies are working to build a "culture of health" among their employees. Healthier employees not only cost less, they produce more.
Worksites in the Louisville Metro region are adding farm-to-institution programs as one of a smorgasbord of health-related benefits. These programs allow employees weekly delivery of seasonal produce, dairy products, meat, poultry, and other food items. Some employers use incentives to boost participation in these food-delivery opportunities.
Louisville Farm to Table helps corporations in the Metro area adopt more sustainable food practices. We can help with:
Employee access to delivered local groceries-
Louisville Farm to Table works with Grasshoppers Distribution, a local-food delivery business that allows employees a wide selection of local and seasonal products and delivers weekly. For more assistance, please contact Farm to Table staff by phone, at 502.574.4140, or Grasshoppers directly by email.
Local food consultation- Louisville Farm to Table can work with food service managers to find sources of local food, including through many preferred vendors, and help them qualify for money-back rebates for using products with direct farm impact.
