Tour de Fresh Announces School Districts Benefiting from 2018 Ride



WATSONVILLE, CA – The California Giant Foundation has announced in a press release that the four school districts to benefit from this year’s Tour de Fresh in conjunction with Salad Bars to Schools are as follows:

  • Vista Unified School District (CA)
  • Pueblo City Schools (CO)
  • Laredo Independent School District (TX)
  • Fairfax Country Public Schools (VA)

“I’m humbled and honored to be a part of something so special to benefit the students of Laredo, Texas,” said Robert Cuellar, Child Nutrition Program Director from Laredo Independent School District. “My goal is to bring more balanced nutrition to these students’ lives since so many of their meals happen while in school. Having salad bars would create an opportunity to teach about fruits and vegetables and offer them choices that they may not have at home.”

Each of the four benefiting school districts have requested 106 salad bars to serve their communities of low-income students. Through Tour de Fresh, industry members and riders will have the chance to take part in a charity which has already raised more than $600,000 to provide salad bars to schools across the United States.

Helena Beckett, Senior Director of VMI and Delivered Sales at Tanimura & Antle and Tour de Fresh steering committee member“Tour de Fresh offers a unique opportunity for industry members to support a cause that we all passionately care about,” said Helena Beckett, Senior Director of VMI and Delivered Sales at Tanimura & Antle and Tour de Fresh steering committee member. “This year, we hope to make a bigger splash by engaging riders and supporters to help bring salad bars to children in these four communities. We have a chance to help these schools offer a variety of fresh, nutritious choices every day. It’s extremely motivating and humbling.”
