With Black Friday in the rear-view mirror, industry members are looking to charitable organizations to support through #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28.
The United Fresh Produce Association’s Fresh Start Foundation’s mission is to increase children’s access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and United Fresh is asking industry members to support the foundation.
The foundation’s Annual Conference and Gala Dinner, Jan. 16-18 in San Diego, is one way to support the group’s mission, according to a news release from United Fresh. The event, which includes an annual fundraising golf tournament, and board/council/committee meetings, has two new features, a silent/live auction and a half-day program on growing access to fresh produce.
During the annual gala dinner, Hugh Topper, group vice president of fresh food for H-E-B, will receive the United Fresh Lifetime Achievement Award.
