Whoever said there is no such thing as a free lunch was unaware of a new contest open to workplaces in Northumberland County, Haliburton County and the City of Kawartha Lakes.

To mark Healthy Workplace Month in October, local workplaces are being encouraged to enter the We All Win with Workplace Health Contest for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate towards a healthy catered lunch for their employees. The contest is sponsored by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.

“The name of the contest sums it up, because everyone wins with workplace health… employees, their families, and the entire community,” says Lisa van der Vinne, a Health Promoter with the HKPR District Health Unit. “A healthy workplace creates the right conditions where employees can enjoy work-life balance. That supports healthier families, which in turn benefits the entire community.”
