BeWell has partnered with Local Food Hub and the Innovation Fund to bring fresh, local produce to County employees!  

*New option for split-share*

If you would like to split a share with another employee, but don't know anyone who is interested, we can connect you with another split-share employee.  Email Tyler Wolf at twolf@albemarle.org to be added to our split-share finder list.

What’s included in each FTW share?
A varying mix of the best local fruits and vegetables biweekly, June through September (8 deliveries).
Before each delivery you will receive an e-mail with share contents, source farms, healthy recipes, and food and farm news.
 
All produce is grown by local farmers and delivered fresh, directly to your workplace! Sample share pictured. After a successful pilot program, we hope to expand to more locations in the future!
 
To help shareholders make the most of their produce we will provide:
-Reference with guidelines for proper produce storage and safe home food handling
-Recipe bank of simple, health-focused recipes
-Swapportunity table at delivery: trade less favorite for more favorite!
