We will be giving information about our Home Care services for the elderly including passing out coupons for our PERS (Personal Emergency Response System). There will be some FCA marketing swag like hand sanitizers and chapsticks for guests to take.

Field Goods
We offer a service that delivers produce from small farms to employees and consumers at workplaces and community sites year round. By partnering with local small farms, we offer superior produce with advantages in freshness, flavor, texture, nutrition, and sustainability. The benefits start with our small farms. The diversity of the farms and their produce translates into a greater nutritional diversity for our customers, and a healthier ecosystem. Small farms typically do not harvest with industrial machinery and the produce is sold to Field Goods right after harvest. Processing and transportation are minimized. We deliver fresh produce to subscribers at NCC every Tuesday, year-round.
