Building a Healthy Pantry

Posted on May 8, 2018 by Kathryn Kitchen

While striving to live a healthy lifestyle, life is made easier when the environment around us supports healthy choices. We spend most of our days at work, yet most of the food available at state agencies is not necessarily healthy. We at Thrive know that many agencies desire healthy food to be available at their locations. Because of this, we created a toolkit to help agencies get started with a Healthy Pantry. A Healthy Pantry is a snack and/or meal vending option run entirely by state employees.
