BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge’s city workers could open up a box and find fresh and local sweet corn, navel oranges, green onions and other fruits and vegetables ready to take home every week this fall.

The program, called “Farm to Work,” is meant to promote healthy eating among city workers. Employees can sign up to have boxes of Louisiana-grown fruits and vegetables delivered to them once a week or once every other week during the next few months.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1hvKZD1) boxes of local produce will be delivered 10 times this fall to City Hall and Baton Rouge’s Human Resources department.

Each box of produce costs $25 each and includes 10 to 12 types of local fruits and veggies.
