We have several criteria to classify our foods as Good 2U. Learn the criteria, and find answers to many more questions on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
 



 Take healthy home with the Good Food Collective

Few things are Good 2U like fresh produce straight from local farms—especially delivered right to your office. We’ve partnered with the Good Food Collective so employees can purchase weekly farm share boxes that come right to Unity Hospital and St. Mary’s Campus.

Good Food Collective’s summer and fall shares are available to Unity employees. Employees sign up individually on the GFC website for a pre-boxed weekly share, which is delivered to the two sites on Tuesdays.

Unity employees are eligible for a $50 reimbursement on their share (one per employee per season), and the option to purchase additional shares for items like meat, eggs and bread is available on the GFC website.

Salad greens: Fresher than fresh.




Seeds of Change Vegan Cooking Class

A vegan diet provides many benefits, including weight loss, decreased cholesterol and triglycerides and a decreased risk for heart disease.

To many people, however, it seems too daunting to even try. This class shows you how to make a vegan diet work.

“It’s a gentle introduction to a plant-based diet with a focus on convenient, healthy options for families on the go or those new to this way of eating.”

Stefanie King, M.D., Unity Family Medicine at Parkway and 2012 Seeds of Change class participant

“I really enjoyed the class. I got to try things I wouldn't have tried. I learned a lot and I lost 20 POUNDS!”

Cheryl Barron, Coordinator of Information System Billing and class participant
