Feeding your patients with produce out of your own #organic #farm. The patients love it!

St. Luke’s Rodale Institute has its own organic farm. Patients eat healthier meals and develop an increased awareness of the importance of food for overall well-being.

Organic farming

In 2014, St. Luke’s University Health Network and the Rodale Institute for organic farming started up an organic farm. The annual yield of 45,000 pounds from 10,000 acres and a greenhouse is utilized in the network of cafetarias and served to patients, employees and visitors.

Extra produce...
