Dear Staff,

We are excited to announce a new benefit for all employees: the opportunity to subscribe to a box of fresh, local fruits and vegetables delivered [insert frequency] to our hospital campus. As part of our commitment to creating a sustainable food system, we have partnered with [insert farm or CSA program name], a Community Supported Agriculture program or CSA, to bring you this new green employee benefit.

Community Supported Agriculture is a partnership between a local farm and a community of supporters that wish to support local agriculture and secure for themselves a reliable, healthy, and sustainable source of food.

The benefits of participating in this program include:

  • Access to fresh fruits and veggies delivered right to your place of work.
  • Discover new types of fruits and veggies and new ways to cook healthier for yourself or your family.
  • Increasing your intake of fruits and veggies will help you lose weight, lower your cholesterol, and even support concentration and memory.
  • Eating more fruits and vegetables, reducing your meat intake, and buying locally reduces your carbon footprint and helps support a healthy environment.

At [insert health system name] we strive to support resilient communities and healthy employees. Our participation in this CSA will help us accomplish both of these goals.

The cost of participation is [insert cost] and boxes will be delivered [insert frequency] to [insert location].
