About Lettuce Work

Salad Blend

The Lettuce Work Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to serving young adults with autism and training them for the future. We operate a commercial greenhouse that provides the platform for school-to-work transition services, job training and employment opportunities for young autistic adults.

Located near New Albany, Ohio, Lettuce Work specializes in growing produce sold and delivered to local schools, supermarkets and restaurants, and generating revenue used to support the company's mission: to build life-long independence for autistic adults by improving their work and communication skills. You can find our pre-packaged salad blend in many of the Columbus-area grocery stores.

Lettuce Work is an approved agency provider for the Ohio Developmentally Disabled system and is authorized to provide adult vocational rehabilitation, adult day habilitation, enclave and community employment.
