Tasting, Seeing, Touching, Smelling all help make something memorable. We invite you to help our industry be memorable to Members of Congress and their staff by donating fresh produce and support to the Fresh Produce to Congress Program.
Your “Produce Donation” will bring a strong visual presence to our key Congressional events in DC. Join your peers and make a pledge today for a certain amount of produce — $100, $250, $500, $1,000 – that we can count on sometime in 2020-2021?
With your pledge on the books, we will source the produce from one of our wholesaler members serving this area, have them bill you back or we will have you deliver to them directly. That allows us immediately bring fresh fruits and veggies to key events in DC.
We will have multiple opportunities, so please sign up today and make a fresh produce pledge for our government relations grassroots efforts! Simply contact Angela Tiwari 202.303.3416 to confirm your pledge!
