Good health starts with good food!  In keeping with that spirit, Deep Root is excited to announce that we are participating in a new initiative spearheaded by Health Care Without Harm, an advocacy group based out of Reston, Virginia. Health Care Without Harm’s primary mission is to transform health care worldwide so that it reduces its environmental footprint, becomes a community anchor for sustainability and a leader in the global movement for environmental health and justice.

Deep Root, along with 19 other farm and food businesses throughout New England, will be participating in Health Care Without Harm’s newest initiative, the Faces of New England project.  This initiative seeks to connect New England based businesses with health care facilities throughout New England and facilitate the increased usage of healthy, locally produced food in the kitchens and cafeterias of these facilities.

Check out Health Care Without Harm’s Webpage for the latest updates on this program and all of their other great initiatives!
