ONTARIO, CALIF. - In partnership with Feeding America, FiveStar, the maker of Simply Fresh branded products, is distributing fresh and wholesome foods directly to the community as part of a massive USDA-funded program known as Farmers to Families.
The company has committed to providing hundreds of thousands of boxes that include generous portions of Caesar Salad, Coleslaw Salad, Sweet Onion Broccoli Sauté Kit, Asian Stir-fry Kit, Almond Cranberry Salad and Crisp Sliced Apple s through the end of June.
“When the opportunity to work with USDA on this amazing project came about it was an easy decision to make to help bring fresh foods from our farmers to the families that desperately need them. It is a win-win that aligns perfectly with our company’s mission each and every day,” said Tal Shoshan, chief executive officer of FiveStar. “While not easy because of the massive scale of this project, and having only a few days to get it off the ground, it’s been very rewarding to know that our efforts will make a positive impact in so many lives, as well as helping our grower partners.”
