Now King County employees can choose from three more CSA@Work sites to get local, farm fresh produce deliveries at work. New locations include the King County International Airport/Boeing Field, King County Elections – Renton, and South Base bus terminal.
The CSA@Work program connects four local CSA programs (CSA – Community Supported Agriculture) with select King County worksites. Employees can sign up for the CSA program of their choice and earn Healthy Incentives credit* when they commit to a season of healthy eating.
Depending on the CSA, deliveries begin mid-June to early July and run for 15-20 weeks. Weekly boxes contain whatever is fresh in the fields and ready for harvest, so in spring might include snap peas, asparagus, and strawberries, and in deep summer, cucumbers, plums and basil. Pike Place Market, one of King County’s partner CSAs, created a short video to show how CSA boxes will vary over the season.
