Rochester Area Businesses Embrace Local Food Workplace Delivery Progra

Rochester Area Businesses Embrace Local Food Workplace Delivery Program
Nearly 80 businesses in the Rochester area to participate in the Good Food Collective's workplace delivery program that supports local farmers

 

(Rochester, NY) April 30, 2015: This summer, local community food enterprise, The Good Food Collective will be delivering boxes of fresh, locally grown produce to many Rochester area businesses. In the past few years, The Good Food Collective has worked with nearly 80 different businesses through their Pre-boxed Share Program and continues to grow each year. The Pre-boxed Share Program delivers conveniently packaged, mindfully-grown produce from local farmers to businesses and their employees in Rochester and the surrounding suburbs, making it easy to support local food and farmers, while improving employee health and wellness.

With the help of around 30 partner farmers and producers in the Greater Rochester area and Finger Lakes, The Good Food Collective is committed to making fresh, local food effortless and accessible. This new hyper-convenient distribution model makes it easier than ever to eat healthy and support local producers.

The Summer Season runs from June 22nd to September 24th, offering 14 weeks of local, sustainable food. The most popular product, the Standard Summer Share, feeds 2-4 people and consists of 6-10 varieties of fresh, sustainable vegetables and fruit harvested from local partner farms.

The Good Food Collective is still accepting new business drop off locations for summer 2015. For more information on how to become a Pre-boxed Share Location, visit thegoodfoodcollective.com or email membership@thegoodfoodcollective.com.
