PFK celebrates $6.4 million raised for families and children

PFK2Produce for Kids celebrated with partners March 2 at the annual Produce for Kids reception at the Southeast Produce Council’s Southern Exposure with a crowd of more than 200 and a “Lettuce Squash Hunger” theme.

“We truly have something to celebrate tonight. We have raised $6.4 million for families in need since 2002 and $309,000 in 2017 alone,” said John Shuman, founder of Produce for Kids and president at Shuman Produce. “It’s phenomenal to see how far we’ve come and how many families we have reached not only through nutrition education, but through those who have sought help from the Feeding America 200 food banks and 60,000 pantries we serve across the U.S.”
