Tour de Fresh, presented by The California Giant Foundation, is the first-of-its-kind, collaborative event that unites the most significant brands and influencers in the fresh produce industry for a four-day cycling event that raises funds to benefit the national Salad Bars to Schools initiative.
The Salad Bars to Schools initiative has helped provide salad bars to over 5,000 schools benefitting 3 million children. Tour de Fresh is a leading supporter of this national movement, working closely with the United Fresh Start Foundation to provide salad bars to schools as a strategy for increasing children’s access to fresh fruits and vegetables every day at school.
The goal of the 2019 Tour de Fresh and its participants is privately finance 40+ new salad bars in school districts across the country. At a cost of approximately $3,000 per salad bar per school, this is a small investment that makes a BIG impact. Since 2014, Tour de Fresh has raised more than $750,000 to provide salad bars to schools across the United States!
Please join us in our cause to make a difference and provide access to fresh fruits and vegetables for kids in schools.
WHY I RIDE:
There are a million reasons to be riding but nothing beats like riding to make fresh foods available to kids!
Growing up on a third world country I saw how important it is to have fresh foods available for our families, kids and everyone around, including those in need. Creating more access to fresh fruits and vegetables to schools sets the tone for a healthier future for generations to come. It also allow kids to make better choices on their food and being able to try new healthier things.
It is such a great opportunity to participate In an event with Good Foods that has the power to change in an impactful way the life of kids that deserve fresher foods and the healthy lifestyle that we all envision to have.
