Fresh produce, farmers’-market style, plus nutrition guidance and peer support

At our Passion For Produce sites, you can choose the fresh produce you want for you and your family–potatoes, carrots, and onions, plus fruits and vegetables that are in season. Trained volunteers from the community are there with food tastings, meal ideas, cooking tips, and other information to help you stay active and healthy. Plus, at our gold sites, our Nutrition Ambassadors lead a 20-minute interactive class that’s informative and fun!

En nuestros sitios de distribución de Passion for Produce, podrá elegir las frutas y verduras que desea para su familia: papas, zanahoria y cebolla, además de las frutas y verduras que estén en temporada. Habrán voluntarios preparados para ofrecer degustaciónes, ideas de platos para preparar, consejos de cocina y demás información para ayudarle a mantenerse activo y saludable. ¡Además, en las distribuciónes “gold,” nuestros embajadores de nutrición dan una clase interactiva de 20 minutos educativa y divertida!

I got days when I don’t want to leave the house, but I look forward to seeing people here and get excited about the food—it connects you, and you take that home with you.

Hay días que no me dan ganas de salir de la casa, pero ver a la gente aqui y la comida me dan entusiasmo—te conecta y eso te lo llevas contigo.
