Fruits and vegetables are often the most neglected foods in the general public's diet. They are especially important for those that are food insecure and do not have access to fresh produce. Providing fresh produce shows that one cares about the health of those receiving food. All quality produce is welcome! Great produce to donate are the same types of produce with a decent shelf life (root vegetables, citrus and melons). Additional variety (berries, etc.) are also needed and bring needed nutritional value.
