Central Office Employees Participate in Farm to Work Pilot Program

May. 30 2017

We know eating fruits and vegetables is healthy for us, but fast food can seem so convenient. That’s why Farm to Work is such an awesome experience.

Farm to Work is a service of Healthy Lives of the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System is being offered as a pilot program for employees working at East Baton Rouge Parish Central Office. Interested employees signed up this spring to receive five boxes (for only $25 per box) of fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables delivered directly to the IRC. Employees will have the option of signing up again for the fall season. Farmer Eric Morrow of Ponchatoula harvests the produce on Sundays and delivers a variety of fruits and vegetables in boxes on Mondays.

“Everything is so fresh and convenient. I couldn’t get it that way anywhere else”, said Pati Tregre, Finance Specialist. And, Martha Sealy, Jump Start Coordinator says that the experience is bringing her family together as they prepare and share the contents from each box.

Farm to Work is also available through some YMCA locations.
