EPC Gives Back!
Last week the Eastern Produce Council visited two Monmouth County, NJ schools that sustained major damage from Superstorm Sandy in October of 2012.
The EPC recently donated Salad Bars to both schools to show our support and issue a new era of healthy eating through fresh produce and nutritional menus for the students.
Consumption of fruits and vegetables is up substantially since the salad bars were put in place. The children are excited to have the salad bars in place, are experimenting with new produce items and are sharing their new favorite items with their families.
