Employer Subsidized Program

Selecting the right program for your wellness budgets is challenging. Our Employer Subsidized Program is flexible and easy to implement. Our service achieves a very high level of employee engagement and an impressive potential ROI.

"We have tried dozens of wellness programs and none have come close to the popularity and impact of Field Goods, particularly on our culture. We actually have people talking excitedly about vegetables in the hallways." Carol Gordon, Director of Benefits at Fujifilm

"Field Goods is a very low-cost way to make a significant impact on the health of our employees." Amy Perrault, VP of HR at Beech-Nut

How It Works

Employers select the dollar amount to contribute to employees' weekly purchase of healthy food, the length of time the program will be offered, and the products eligible for the subsidy. We recommend a minimum of $10 per order over a 10-week period.

Carb-Conscious Produce Bag

For employees addressing weight loss and diabetes, we offer the curated Carb-Conscious Produce Bag that includes low-carbohydrate produce items (under 15 grams per 100 gram serving) to help support low-carb diets. We also arrange for online nutritional counseling with a registered dietician that works specifically with Field Goods.

Employee engagement in our subsidized programs runs from 40% to 75% depending on the amount of the subsidy. As importantly, Field Goods uniquely delivers a benefit that is brought home to employees’ families.
