Our Mission

The United Fresh Start Foundation is focused on one mission — to increase children’s access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

We believe every child should grow up with access to fresh, wholesome fruits and vegetables to help ensure a strong, healthy future. Nearly one in three kids in America overweight or obese, underscoring how critical it is to allow kids to make choices that set them on a path to lifelong health. That’s why we’re dedicated to creating an environment where kids have easy access to fresh fruits and vegetables everywhere they live, learn, and play.

Why Access? Access to fresh fruits and vegetables is the linchpin to a healthy diet. While additional factors contribute to developing and sustaining healthy eating habits, access is essential to consumption of healthy foods. Further, the United Fresh Start Foundation is uniquely positioned to contribute to increased access because of our connection to the fresh produce industry.
