Delano, Calif.-based Railex LLC has pledged five salad bars to United Fresh Foundation’s Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools initiative.
Congressman David Valadao, R-Hanford, was scheduled to present the first to Armona Union Elementary School District in a ceremony at Railex’s Delano facility.
“We are very proud to be able to participate in the school salad bar program, especially when it benefits children of our employees,” Pat Bruno, senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a news release.
Railex is a distribution and logistics company.
“A large part of our core business involves fruits and vegetables, and we welcome the opportunity to assist in growing consumption within the youth of America,” Bruno said.
The company plans to announce other donations this year, according to the release.
