The Granola Project

The Granola Project has been a huge success!  We are traveling throughout the health system delivering healthy granola snacks to our amazing employees.

The purpose of the project is simply to spread joy through wholesome goodness.  If you haven’t seen or heard of the granola project it’s probably because we haven’t reached your area yet – we’re on our way and will be there soon!

 Due to the overwhelming response to the granola (made from scratch by our amazing Medical Center of the Rockies Hospitality Team), we are giving away the recipe. 

 Be well and be healthy!
