Buy apples, support kids

Sound Consumer September 2016

PCC has again partnered with Washington state organic apple growers and Organically Grown Company (the Northwest’s largest organic produce distributor) to fund farm-to-school education in our region.

Proceeds from bagged organic Fuji apples in specially marked Farm to School bags will support children’s programs at Seattle Tilth through its locations in Wallingford, Rainier Beach and Issaquah. To date, more than $150,000 has been donated — and the 2015 harvest season was the most successful yet, with a contribution of $62,000.

These fresh apples will appear in PCC’s produce departments this fall, timed with the harvest. Get them while they last!
