USDA is partnering with farmers, ranchers, specialty crop producers, food processors and distributors (like us!), and non-profit organizations to ensure that all Americans have access to the fresh and wholesome food they need during the COVID-19 national emergency. We are so thankful for the opportunity to be a distributor for this program to help the surrounding Bay Area communities in need.
As of today our incredible team has produced and distributed over 600,000+ of boxes filled with fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy and meat content from our network of growers of suppliers. We can’t say thanks enough to the USDA for this opportunity to help our own small business and family of employees. A big thanks as well to our extended partners from our suppliers to our non-profit distribution centers!
Take a look below for a few highlights during these past few weeks!
