Foodlink and RTS partner to promote healthy living

Foodlink was back at Regional Transit Service headquarters today on East Main Street on Friday as guests of the RTS Employee Wellness Program. 

RTS is a finalist for the RBJ’s 2017 Wealth of Health Awards and Foodlink has partnered with them through our Nutrition Education and Curbside Market programs. 

On Friday morning, two nutrition educators gave a food demo (summer squash and white bean salad) and offered up tips on how to properly store produce. 

A little later, the newest Curbside Market vehicle rolled in and employees were given $5 vouchers to purchase some fresh fruits and vegetables ahead of the weekend.

“Earlier this year, RTS received some grant money from Common Ground Health to help improve blood pressure and education among employees and one of the pieces of that was to partner up with Foodlink and make healthy fruits and vegetables accessible to employees,” said Renee Elwood, Manager of Wellness and Benefits at RTS.
