Florence Rice Cake Bar
This novel idea started from a Florence employee who posted a picture of his rice cake concoction in a group text and eventually, others added their own picture. It was mentioned by the originator of the first text to create a rice cake bar, so the Florence Township Wellness Coordinator sprung into action! 😊. Karen and Marty used the pictures to design the flyer/sign-up sheet.
They received a donation of rice cakes and employees supplied peanut butter, cream cheese, vanilla Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, peaches, bananas, honey, pistachios, pecans, coconut, slivered almonds, dark chocolate chips, and everything but the bagel seasoning.
Needless to say, there was a lot of laughter, “yumminess”, crunching and munching going on there! And yes, they still got their work done!
What I love about this idea is: 1) it’s healthy 2) it invites camaraderie 3) it’s easy and fun, improving morale and I would bet 4) it INCREASES productivity when they go back to their desks. Thank you Karen and Marty for this inspiring, fun idea!
