IFCO Systems, the leading global provider of reusable packaging solutions, has announced that it is donating salad bars to five Romulus Community Schools, located southwest of Detroit.
The donations are being made in coordination with the United Fresh Foundation’s Let's Move Salad Bars to Midwest Schools campaign, which works to increase children's access to and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.
“IFCO has a long and strong history of corporate social responsibility, particularly in the area of helping to make high quality fresh produce available to school kids," said Dan Walsh, president of IFCO North America. "We proudly support organisations that promote initiatives impacting the everyday lives of people in the communities we serve, such as United Fresh’s salad bar initiative, Forgotten Harvest, a food bank in the greater Detroit area, and related food safety initiatives.”
The salad bars were arranged through a partnership with the United Fresh Foundation to support the organisation’s Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools initiative, which is committed to increasing children’s produce consumption by working with the produce industry, foundations and allied businesses to support salad bars for schools nationwide.
