Farm to Work

Farm to Work is an employee wellness and Farm Direct marketing project that connects local farmers with employees at partner worksites. The program provides farmers with a reliable and economically viable marketing outlet.

Farm to Work offers employees increased access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and addresses some key barriers many employees face when trying to add more fruits and vegetables to their diets. Employees can order and pay for a basket of fresh produce, delivered by the farmer directly to the worksite. This project was developed by Sustainable Food Center in partnership with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).

Food or farm organizations interested in working with local family farmers may find more information about establishing their own Farm to Work program by visiting farmtowork.org and clicking the “contact for info” button.
