WORKPLACE CSA

Are you interested in starting or improving a workplace CSA program? Whether your workplace is a small business, large corporation, school or agency, FairShare can help you develop a robust CSA program that’s just the right fit.

WORKPLACE CSA FOR EMPLOYEES

  • Convenience – No more fighting traffic or dealing with tired kids when you pick up your box after work. Leave work with your veggies and save shopping and driving time.

  • Camaraderie – Enjoy the fun of opening your box  in the company of your colleagues! Swap veggies, share recipes, and experience CSA with your colleagues. Single-person households can easily ban together to split a share or add-ons, and when you go on vacation, it’s easy to find a friend to take your box.

  • Community – Workplace CSA brings people together from across many different departments for the fun of unpacking CSA shares once a week. Take it a step further by holding a CSA potluck or visiting your farm together!

WORKPLACE CSA FOR BUSINESSES

Offering a workplace CSA program is a low-cost, concrete means of contributing to your company’s wellness and sustainability goals, and shows employees you care. Many businesses are treating workplace CSA like a new employee benefit! Workplace CSA programs are increasing across Southern Wisconsin.

Learn how FairShare can help you incorporate fresh food into your workplace, strengthen your community, AND support local farms. We are able to offer assistance on a fee-for-service basis (see below).
