CardConnect Participates in Greener Partners’ ‘Farm Fresh to Office’ Initiative

“You Are What You Eat”

We’ve all heard this time-honored (albeit overused) ‘proverb’ that has been proved valid among widespread research. Healthy eating, which was once a fad, is now a lifestyle. CardConnect firmly believes in fostering healthy behaviors in our employees, as our health can be directly correlated to our happiness, and happy employees make a happy workplace. With that being said, CardConnect team members are provided with a bevy of health-related perks (free gym memberships, yoga classes and Mindfulness sessions to name a few), and in order to navigate the somewhat tricky landscape of healthy eating, we enlisted the help of Greener Partners’ Farm Fresh to Office initiative.

Greener Partners is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose main goal is to increase and strengthen public access to fresh, local food while training new farmers to achieve success in the growing farm-to-table economy and educating people about the origins of what they consume. At its core, Farm Fresh to Office is a traveling farmers market that provides local companies with the season’s freshest crops. Interested in learning more? Check out the Farm Fresh introduction video featuring yours truly.

Every Tuesday, the Farm Fresh to Office initiative delivers fresh vegetables and fruits to our office – ranging from carrots and potatoes to watermelon radishes and kale. Our employees are especially excited for the spring / summer crop share, which include watermelon, tomatoes, corn and cucumbers.

Although healthy eating may seem tedious, it’s actually rather simple when you have the right resources. Visit Greener Partners’ site today – you may just learn something new!
