DALLAS, TX – This week, the Dallas Fresh Food Association (DFFA), a group dedicated to raising the profile of fresh food in North Texas, announced appointments to its 2018 Board of Directors. The association—devoted to showcasing careers, pursuing a food-education agenda, and increasing fresh food consumption—announced the makeup of its new board in a press release, and it also encouraged local North Texas companies and workers to become members.
“The value of having a local association dedicated to serving the DFW area means being able to connect with and train the future leaders of the fresh food industry, while empowering our community to choose more fresh food,” said Dale Long, Association President. “In order to truly impact DFW the way we know it desperately needs is to activate our individual talents together to create hands-on opportunities that make an impact across the very areas that we serve in our businesses.”
The following officers were elected to this year’s Board of Directors:
- President, Dale Long of North Texas Food Bank
- Treasurer, Michael Grinstead of The Grinstead Group
- Marketing, Beth Keeton of DMA Solutions
- Membership, Steve Monson of C.H. Robinson

- Ben E. Keith
- Del Monte Fresh
