Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools
The mission of Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools is to increase children's access and consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables by donating salad bars to schools nationwide.
United Fresh is a founding partner of Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools which supports First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative to end childhood obesity in a generation. Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools plays a major role in improving the healthfulness of school meals and creating healthier school food environments. Salad bars are the easiest way for schools to meet the new nutrition standards for school lunch, which double the amount of fruits and vegetables served and emphasize color and variety.
More than 2,600 schools throughout the United States have received salad bars, benefitting more than 1.3 million school children every day. Schools interested in applying for salad bars should visit the Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools website, www.saladbars2schools.org.
Salad bars are in high demand and generous contributions from individuals, organizations and foundations make it possible for Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools to provide salad bars to schools committed to increasing students' fruit and vegetable consumption.
Join United Fresh, produce industry colleagues and business leaders from across the nation to support Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools.
