EAT WELL, WORK WELL

Eat Well Work Well logo

Please join your co-workers in committing to “Eat Well, Work Well.” A large part of creating a culture of health and well-being in the workplace, is encouraging healthy food and beverage choices. This includes simply choosing water over sweetened drinks, and choosing to pack a lunch instead of eating out (or ordering in).

Each month there will be a specific "healthier eating" challenge. Challenges will focus on a variety of food and beverage topics.  While an individual can complete the challenges on his/her own, we do encourage co-workers to participate together.  Having partners for accountability is more fun, and will lead to higher success.

BCPS Testimonies:

“I feel like I’m picking fresh vegetables from my garden all winter long,” Sharon Ward, Jefferson.

“I was so excited to be able to host a Thanksgiving dinner using only Hungry Harvest produce! I dressed my turkey with onions, garlic and carrots and made two veggie side dishes sautéed Brussels sprouts and roasted broccoli and zucchini. Knowing that a family in need was also sharing the same meal thanks to Hungry Harvest made Thanksgiving extra special this year for my family.” Karen Heinrich, Jefferson.
