The produce industry is celebrating the donation of salad bars to California schools. The United Fresh Foundation gathered with the mayor of San Diego, the State Superintendent of Schools, and a group of California students and others, to recognize the efforts of United Fresh members, who worked together to make the donation of several hundred salad bars to schools around the state.

Brad Knipscheer is the Director of Nutrition Services for Hemet Unified School District. He was recently recognized by the USDA and the first lady for instituting salad bars at every school in his district.

The donation is the result of a year-long effort by United Fresh members.
