The farm-to-table food movement has gained popularity over the years due to its support of local farmers and using readily available, local high-quality produce. These fresh foods are also an important part of our Food for Life™ Program.


Locally grown foods have higher nutritional value as well as better flavors. When incorporating these plant-based foods into our meals, we ensure maximum nutritional value, taste and presentation.
