Nutrition

Growing fresh produce consumption is key to the mission of United Fresh. We lead the produce industry in shaping federal nutrition policies that increase access and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables by working with USDA, CDC, Congress and allied industry, education and public health organizations. Check out our Priority Issues tab to the left for more detailed information. 

We also believe in the role of the private sector to increase children’s access to fresh produce. Our philanthropic efforts are run through our United Fresh Start Foundation.

Federal nutrition policy is led by Mollie Van Lieu
