“Together We Grow” with athenahealth

Blog / “Together We Grow” with athenahealth

This summer and fall, Fresh Truck has been fortunate enough to partner with athenahealth to run “Together We Grow”, a series of pop-up events at 10 community health centers across Massachusetts, with a goal to help health centers provide patients with access to fresh food. At each event, athenahealth provides 100 shoppers with $10 each to shop for fruits and vegetables at Fresh Truck. In addition to sponsoring the produce, athenahealth has generously provided tote bags and a healthy chickpea salad recipe, with ingredients that shoppers can pick up on the truck.

The pop-ups have provided great volunteer opportunities for athenahealth employees. At each event, employees from across the athenahealth network help Fresh Truck staff distribute tote bags, restock shelves, and check shoppers out. They have even hosted a guacamole tasting for shoppers waiting in line.

By the time we complete the series of pop-ups, athenahealth and Fresh Truck will have provided nearly 1,000 shoppers with $10,000 of fresh fruits and vegetables. We’re so thankful for the hard work and enthusiasm of the entire athenahealth team to put this series of events together!
