US: Potato industry teams with United Fresh Start Foundation to move salad bars to schools

Inspired by the United Fresh Start Foundation’s efforts to get the produce industry involved in the Move Salad Bars to Schools initiative, the CEO of the United States Potato Board, Blair Richardson, challenged the potato industry to donate salad bars to 300 schools each year, as part of the program. The Board leadership approved using assessment funds to match every salad bar donated by the potato industry starting in July 2015. Through February 2016, the potato industry has donated 84 salad bars which have been matched by the Board. Together with additional bars donated by the Board, a total of 180 salad bars have been placed in schools. The potato industry has now donated more salad bars to the program than any other sector of the produce industry. More
