Connecting Families & Individuals to Local, Sustainable, Farm Fresh Food
The Good Food Collective is a local food share program connecting UR employees with fresh, local, sustainable food from their network of small farms. You can sign up for single orders or commit to a longer period of time to receive this good food at a convenient location within your workplace.
Summer & Beyond
The summer season provides members with local, sustainable food at each of our weekly distributions. Purchase one week at a time, or purchase all weeks for a discounted price! Standard produce share members will receive a mix of fruits and veggies including lots of summer favorites – tomatoes, lettuce, green beans, corn, melons, peaches, berries, and more! Other shares include grass fed beef, pasture raised pork & poultry, artisanal cheese, fresh roasted coffee, freshly baked bread, organic veggie burgers and more!

How to get your UR location on the distribution list:
