Farm to Work (Texas)

Health Equity Considerations

The Farm to Work program intends to increase availability and consumption of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables among worksite employees.  It is implemented in 36 worksites in Central Texas including DSHS offices, multiple other state office buildings, City of Austin sites, and private worksites.  All employees are invited to participate.  While the racial/ethnic representation of employees taking part in the Farm to Work program is not known, it is reasonable to estimate that most participants live in and around Austin, TX.
