Fresh produce is one of the top 3 desired foods by those seeking our support, which is why it’s so high on our sourcing priority list. Your support makes it possible to source this healthy and nutritious food which makes up 1/3 of our annual food distribution.

One of our volunteers loves to tell the story of an experience at our food shelf. “A little boy, probably 5 or 6, saw our fresh produce and asked, ‘how much of the blueberries can I have?’” Dave replied, “All of them, you can have as much produce as you’d like.” He shared how happy the boy and his family were to have access to so much fresh produce.

Thank you for putting smiles on the faces of Northland children and ensuring our acquisition and distribution of over 2 million pounds of fresh produce each year.
