Addressing food insecurity effectively means providing people with safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs. Fresh produce is an essential part of that equation–providing a valuable source of nutrients to help promote health and prevent chronic disease in a manner that ensures the dignity of those in communities impacted by food insecurity.
Offering fresh produce in a food distribution setting can pose unique challenges. How do you find a consistent source? How do you make sure you are storing and handling it safely?
In this training, we will help you understand and access the local supply chain for fresh produce. We will address operational factors such as equipment needs and food safety. And we will discuss how to help clients find longer-term solutions for meeting their fresh produce needs.
