Since the pandemic, it has been hard to find flour in the stores sometimes - what a nice thing for TwinCraft to barter for flour. I would have loved that!
Sarah Oughton

I love the idea of the veggie bag! We do turkey handouts as well around thanksgiving, however we had many employees this past year who did not take a turkey because they did not know how to cook it!!
Helen Labun

As customers, our household has always appreciated the depth / breadth of King Arthur’s educational offerings that go along with the products!

I'm curious if any groups are stocking a pantry at the worksite for food share with employees?
Mari Walsh

I may have missed this when Jessica was sharing...does KAB receive a discount on the turkeys? I love that idea but thinking it could get expensive.

Thank you all so much for sharing! We struggle with employee engagement in our wellness activities. Did you all find that it was hard to get employee buy in with these programs? What are some steps you took to overcome that? Thank you again!
Valerie Valcour

Thank you, panelists and sponsors!

I have a thought for an idea. We could provide employees with a few herb plants this spring, maybe basil, dill and oregano (could be any easy to grow herbs). And then during the summer we can try to post recipes that use those herbs and encourage people to share more recipes and/or pictures of dishes they make with those herbs.
