BCH Foundation and Farmers Market celebrate staff with bags of fresh produce

In partnership with the Boulder County Farmers Market, the Boulder Community Health Foundation (BCH Foundation) provided over 1,700 locally sourced produce bags to Boulder Community Health (BCH) staff for its annual employee appreciation event. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for all and has revealed how incredibly essential health care and frontline workers are to our communities. This system-wide employee appreciation event is just one piece of the BCH Centennial Anniversary Celebration, honoring BCH staff and community partnerships all year long. 

“The BCH Foundation is grateful to once again partner with the Boulder County Farmers Market to distribute bags of fresh produce and other non-perishable items to all BCH Employees. Through the community collaboration fund, the BCH Foundation supports BCH in capacity building and improving the social determinants impacting the health of our community, which includes BCH staff and physicians,” said Grant Besser, Vice President of Community Health & Engagement and President, BCH Foundation. “We want to honor our staff and let them know their hard work does not go unnoticed. By providing these farm-fresh bags, we are supporting the health and wellbeing of our BCH team and their families” 

Boulder County Farmers Market worked with local farmers and food producers to provide an abundant bag of produce and specialty items to all BCH employees this summer. Fresh summer produce and other items from many local producers including First Fruits Organic Farms, Hoffman Farms, Rough and Ready Farm, The Jolly Radish, Bee Grateful Farm, Pastificio Boulder, Havenly Baked Goods, Silver Canyon Coffee, Outrageous Baking, and il Porcellino Salumi. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Boulder Community Health to bring fresh, local food to health care workers and help BCH employees incorporate more local food into their daily routines,” says Mackenzie Sehlke, Executive Director at the Boulder County Farmers Market. “What a wonderful way to celebrate Boulder Community Health’s centennial and over two years of acute pandemic care for our neighbors and families.” 

BCH is committed to its vision of 'partnering to create and care for the healthiest community in the nation,' and the Boulder County Farmers Market is dedicated to supporting local growers and increasing access to healthy food.
