The Grower-Shipper Association Foundation and The United Fresh Produce Association are donating a salad bar to Fairview Middle School in Gonzales, Calif., Nov. 2.
The salad bars are part of a local, state and national initiative to promote healthy eating and fight childhood obesity, according to a news release. Fairview Middle School is the first of four area schools to receive a salad bar.
Enough funds were raised in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties to purchase more than 20 salad bars for local schools, according to the release.
Congressman Sam Farr will be present to help award the salad bar and he is a supporter of the More Produce in Schools and the Let’s Move campaigns.
