Keeping it Fresh

By Briana McGonagle February 20, 2018 2:01 pm

Our goal is not only to provide food to our neighbors in need, but to provide the freshest and healthiest foods. In order to do so, we purchased our first refrigerated truck in 2017, and, thanks to the extreme generosity of the guests at our annual Empty Bowls dinner, we are now able to retrofit our remaining two trucks with refrigeration units. Last year, almost 28% of the food we distributed was fresh, perishable product, compared to 20% just two years ago. We are committed to nourishing our community, and aim for 35% fresh product distribution by 2020!
