Viva Fresh's Third Annual Golf Tournament to Raise Funds for Salad Bars to Schools
AUSTIN, TX - The third annual Viva Fresh Produce Expo is fast-approaching, with plans to kick off with the traditional “Swing for the Future,” Viva Fresh Open. This time, in addition to a fun opportunity to connect and network, the event will also support produce consumption for kids by benefiting Salad Bars to Schools.
“Ensuring that children of all ages have daily access to fresh fruits and vegetables is something we’re all passionate about here,” said Bret Erickson, President and CEO of the Texas International Produce Association, host of Viva Fresh. “So many youths today do not have the opportunity to eat healthy foods like fresh fruit or vegetables, and we are seeking to change that through the support of organizations like Salad Bars to Schools.”
Taking place at the Crenshaw Cliffside Golf Course on Thursday, April 20 at the Barton Creek Omni Resort, the tournament will be presented by Bebo Distributing, Inc. and Wonderful Citrus, according to a press release.
“We’re excited to be continuing the Viva Fresh Open tradition as the opening event to the Viva Fresh Expo,” said Craig Slate, VP of Sales at SunFed. “The tournament not only provides a great opportunity for networking and fun competition, but we’re especially proud to raise funds to put salad bars in schools throughout the state of Texas.”
Founded by Chef Ann Foundation, the National Fruit and Vegetable Alliance, the United Fresh Start Foundation, and Whole Foods, Salad Bars to Schools looks to provide healthy eating opportunities for kids of all ages by placing salad bars in school foodservice programs across the country.
