Holiday Produce Drive

Help Low-Income Kids Eat Healthy on Holiday Break!

Back Dec 13, 2015 @ 10 am

You can make sure every child in Food Literacy Center’s after-school programs goes home for holiday break with a box of 25 fruits and vegetables – five servings for five days.

By sending these students home with healthy produce they can continue practicing the healthy habits that we have helped them develop in food literacy class. We hope to raise 7,000 pieces of produce to send students home with the recommended daily serving of fruits & vegetables.

You’re encouraged to purchase produce that will stay fresh for several days, such as carrots, oranges and apples (view a complete list below) at Whole Food Market stores during the six-hour window. You can also drop off fruits and vegetables you harvest. 

  • apples
  • bananas
  • bell peppers
  • cabbage
  • carrots
  • cauliflower
  • celery
  • citrus: mandarins, oranges, tangerines
  • persimmons
  • pomegranates
  • potatoes
  • pumpkins
  • squash
  • sweet potatoes
