National Food of the Month Drive – Eat Your Fresh Fruit and Vegetables!
Did you know June is National Eat Your Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month?
Fresh fruit and vegetables are a huge staple at the Food Depository. Whether you like apples or oranges, broccoli or fresh corn on the cob, nothing says summer like fresh fruit and vegetables! A great source of nutrition, fiber and vitamins, the Food Depository distributed 26 million pounds of fresh produce last year! Join our June Drive and help provide fresh fruit and vegetables to our neighbors in need!
