K-12 School Foodservice
United Fresh Produce Association has created a new K-12 School Foodservice Membership category. Through membership, K-12 school foodservice directors and their staff will have access to a wide range of member benefits, including resources to help source, serve and promote fresh fruits and vegetables in meal and snack programs, as well as opportunities to collaborate with produce industry partners.
K-12 school foodservice members can enjoy the following benefits, and much more!
- Assistance identifying produce distributors and industry contacts by region, commodity, and industry segment.
- FreshFacts® on Retail and Fresh Insights for Foodservice – fresh produce trends research to help you plan and inspire your menus.
- United Fresh publications, webinars, white papers and other resources on food safety, operations, supply chain logistics, nutrition policy and more.
- Invite to the annual United Fresh Convention & Expo, as well as the opportunity to participate in the School Foodservice Forum.
United Fresh membership is available to School Districts/School Foodservice Authorities at the rate of $250/year. Through membership, the School Foodservice Director can designate additional contacts to access United Fresh resources.
