Season of Giving Back

Throughout the month of December, the Season of Giving Back celebrated and recognized the charitable efforts of the produce industry and their partners this past year, while also supporting The United Fresh Start Foundation and our mission to increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables for children and their families.

The Season of Giving Back

Celebrating Heroes
We celebrated produce companies, non-profit partners and schools that have gone above and beyond to make fresh fruit and vegetables available for children and families in need. We continue to highlight these partnerships to the industry and beyond.

Share your impact

The Gift of Time
We created an opportunity for industry members to volunteer their time and expertise to schools and non-profit organizations looking for advice and technical support in serving fresh produce to their communities.


Raise a Glass
We brought the industry together for interactive networking events and holiday cheer, while also organizing a raffle to benefit The United Fresh Start Foundation.  Although the raffle has ended, contributions to support the foundation are still being accepted. Make a donation today!
