Carolina Care Plan Launches New Home Delivery Program for Organic Produce

COLUMBIA, S.C., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Carolina Care Plan members can now have fresh organic vegetables, herbs and micro greens delivered directly to their homes through a new partnership with The Chef's Garden, a family-run farm who currently provides produce to well-known South Carolina restaurants including Charleston Grill and Circa 1886.

Mantras to live healthier, resolutions to eliminate unhealthy habits and promises to enhance diet and exercise seem to be the focus of every conversation these days. Many of the more progressive healthcare providers around the nation support these efforts by providing preventive wellness and disease management programs to help their members get healthy and stay healthy. Carolina Care Plan's recently announced produce delivery program takes these concepts to a whole new level.

"Consistent with our message of promoting healthy lifestyles, including healthy food choices, we are pleased to be able to offer our members this unique opportunity. We feel it's important that we not only promote the benefits of making healthy lifestyle changes, but that we also provide a means for members to do so," says Paula Sauer, VP of Care Management. "This is a natural component of our strong commitment to wellness."

Carolina Care Plan members already have access to an array of programs and services to help identify and manage lifestyle behaviors that contribute to health risks. Wellness support tools include smoking cessation programs, Weight Watchers, fitness club discounts, Nurse Line and a host of online interactive tools to maximize health and wellness.

Previously only available to professional chefs, produce from The Chef's Garden is grown using sustainable agriculture best practices, hand-harvested and shipped for delivery within a week. The company ensures that all produce is safe for both consumers and the environment while offering maximum nutrition and taste. The Chef's Garden is routinely inspected and has received superior ratings from top food safety and quality companies

Through Carolina Care Plan's partnership, over 600 varieties of lettuces, greens, vegetables, herbs, micro greens and unusual specialty vegetables can be purchased for $25 to $35 a box. A percentage of each purchase benefits The Chef's Garden's non-profit organization Veggie U, which teaches children in more than 1,600 classrooms around the U.S. the value of a lifestyle that involves good nutrition and eating habits.

Founded in 1984 and headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina, Carolina Care Plan is a wholly owned subsidiary of Medical Mutual of Ohio, one of the nation's oldest healthcare providers. Carolina Care Plan serves as a partner to its clients, providing innovative, long-term healthcare solutions through its products and services.
