It doesn’t get more “local” than this!
I am grateful to be working with an organization that values clean, fresh, local, organically grown food. Every day, I can walk to either of two beautiful on-site cafe’s where meal choices include food that is grown at gardens right here in the middle of the campus!

Last week at Qualcomm, we celebrated the end of summer harvest with great food and inspirational guests. The farmer who heads up the tending of our garden, as well as one of the chef’s who prepares daily meals using ingredients from the garden, were invited for a small gathering. Each of them shared their unique experience with the project and followed up with a brief Q&A.
Afterward, we enjoyed a wonderful light lunch of salad, bread, and agua fresca. The salad included greens, raspberries, several heirloom varieties of beets, and fresh peaches from the garden stuffed with mascarpone topped with candied walnuts and a freshly made strawberry vinaigrette dressing!
As you can see, the garden includes a delectable variety of vegetables such as tomatoes (well, I guess, technically, that’s a fruit), radishes, bell peppers, zucchini, cucumber, beans, chili peppers, and squash. There are apricot, peach, fig, citrus and pomegranate trees. Of course, there is even an herb garden.
btw… All of these photos were taken with my iPhone 7…not bad, for snapshots.
It is a pleasure to have access to such incredible food and the talent to prepare it in such wonderfully creative ways and offer it at a price that rivals fast food! There is no contest!
What is your favorite source for local, organic food? I’d love to hear from you.
