Bee Sweet Citrus, Fowler, Calif., is ready to be part of back-to-school plans, even if students are studying at home.

“Right now, a lot of families are adjusting to work and school,” Joe Berberian, sales representative, said in a news release. “The last thing parents need to worry about is the availability of immunity-boosting produce, which is why we are proud to be a year-round citrus supplier for our customers.”

Bee Sweet imports citrus in the summer to maintain year-round supplies, according to the release, including oranges, mandarins and lemons. The company is sponsoring the Produce for Kids Power Your Lunchbox program for the fifth year.

“Regardless of what the classroom setting looks like, healthy fruits and vegetables play an integral role in a child’s diet,” Monique Bienvenue, director of communications, said in the release. “Through the Power Your Lunchbox program, families have access to more than 70 different kid-friendly recipes, as well as other resources to help families make the most out of the new school year.”
