Holiday Produce Drive
Help Low-Income Kids Eat Healthy on Holiday Break!

You can make sure kids in Food Literacy Center’s after-school programs go 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.
