“Build Your Own Box” Program Fosters Healthy Workplaces

edible Reno-Tahoe magazine, Spring 2015 issue – Managers at the Tahoe Mountain Club in Truckee were looking for ways to help members and employees conveniently, affordably, and regularly access fresh, local produce. Kendra McGargill, events manager at the homeowner and golf association, partnered with Tahoe Food Hub to create a CSA program for its North Tahoe members and staff. The hub’s leaders make the process seamless with an easy order form and weekly deliveries.
