What is Farm to Work

veggiesFarm to Work is a partnership between worksites and local farmers supported by the Sustainable Food Center of Austin. The goal of the program is to allow employees easy access to fresh fruits and vegetables to help improve health and wellness, as well as support the local economy. All the produce is fresh and locally grown, free of chemical pesticides, by Plant It Forward farms.

Farm to Work comes to UH thanks to a partnership between Human Resources' POWER UP Employee Wellness initiative, the UH Office of Sustainability, the Sustainable Food Center of Austin and Plant It Forward farms.

Ordering and Pickup
