Westport, CT – May 17, 2016 – The Westport Weston Family YMCA has officially partnered with Field Goods to offer a produce delivery service to Y members and the Westport/Weston community! Founded five years ago, Field Goods is a one-of-a-kind subscription-based business that delivers freshly-harvested local fruit and vegetables to employees and consumers at workplaces and community locations.
Field Goods subscribers receive 5 to 8 different types of fruits and vegetables each week, sourced from over 80 small farms – the majority of which are located in the Hudson Valley. Weekly add-on options include local artisan bread, fresh pasta, local cheese, extra fruit, and more. A weekly e-newsletter, In the Bag, provides tips and recipes as a helpful guide for preparing the produce. Customers sign up online at Field-Goods.com, and can put their account on hold and restart at any time.
“With Field Goods, we have created a new channel of food distribution that supports small farmers and healthy eating,” explains Donna Williams, Field Goods founder and president. “Our customers love how we help them discover new vegetables with tips, recipes, fund anecdotes, and exciting anticipation of what’s coming in the bag.”
Research attests to Field Goods’ healthy results. The Sage Colleges Nutrition Science Department’s 2014 research study reveals a direct correlation between Field Goods and healthier diets, increased satisfaction with eating habits, and saving time and money on grocery shopping.
Weekly or bi-weekly produce subscriptions cost $15, $20, $25, and $30, plus an additional $2 fundraiser to support the YMCA’s Chronic Disease Management & Prevention programs.

“Partnering with Field Goods allows our YMCA to make healthier choices, easier choices,” says YMCA Wellness Director Alexei Bachuretz. “Simply making healthier food more readily available typically leads to better eating, and better eating makes healthier people.”
