Spring has sprung! Get ready to stock up on delicious eats, try new recipes and connect with colleagues, all while supporting local farmers.
Through the CSA@Work program (Community Supported Agriculture), employees are able to buy local seasonal food (a “share”) from a farmer and receive deliveries right at or near work. Typically, the share consists of a weekly box of vegetables – additional items such as eggs, flowers and fruits are also available.
Beginning in late June, CSA@Work will deliver weekly boxes of freshly harvested produce to 10 King County worksites. Each week, you’ll receive recipes, storage tips, and easy preparation ideas to make the most of your box. Deliveries wrap up in late October.
Choose from one of the 10 King County worksites below. You don’t have to work at a particular building to select it (with the three noted exceptions), but keep in mind it should be convenient for you to pick up your order on a weekly basis. Note that in order for produce to be delivered to a worksite, there must be a minimum of 10 participants. If you’re planning on signing-up, don’t hesitate! Sign up today to ensure delivery to your selected worksite.

Worksite produce deliveries are one way that we’re aiming to bring accessible and delicious local goods to you. Don’t see a worksite on the list that’s close to you? While locations are set for 2019, we will be able to consider additional sites for next year.
