What is Farm to Work
Farm 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
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
Ordering and Pickup
Employees must bring their ID or present their receipt/email confirmation from their phone at the pickup site, and a bag to carry their items. Refunds will not be issued for failed order retrievals. They will be considered a donation to Plant It Forward Farms.
Employees can check out the UH Farm to Work website to sign up for weekly order reminder emails and look up recipes they can make with the available produce items.
