MUSC Employee Wellness has partnered with two local community supported agriculture programs to provide a convenient way for MUSC employees and students to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown by local farmers. Both are accepting orders for the spring season, which begins the third week in April and runs through late July.
Our Local Foods offers a members-only delivery service of locally sourced food items for healthy at-home meals to MUSC employees. Gruber Family Farms also is offering weekly shares of healthy produce. Visit http://www.musc.edu/catalyst/archive/2012/co3-23crop.html for more information on both of these programs and for information on signing up for the spring CSA season.
