The best way to support organic farmers and their sustainable agricultural practices is to increase demand for their products. This week, a survey will go out to 2,200 Kaiser Permanente employees working in the 1800 Harrison building in downtown Oakland to assess their interest in the weekly delivery of organic fruits and vegetables directly to their workplace.
The organic farmers currently serving our Oakland Medical Center would bring extra food for subscribers at 1800 Harrison. The food would be distributed in boxes or bags in the lobby during the hours of operation of our Friday Fresh Farmers' Market. This has the potential to significantly leverage the farmers' time and greatly benefit our employees’ health and wellness.
Who knows, maybe 1950 Franklin, Ordway, and Kaiser Center would be next?
This week's recipe is a simple salad recognizing the end of stone fruit season and the beginning of the citrus season. Either oranges or tangerines work well in this vinaigrette.
This is so simple and so tasty.
