Now beginning our fourth year with this program, PCC has again partnered with Washington 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 focused on food and nutrition throughout the greater Seattle area. To date, over $150,000 has been donated — and the 2015 harvest season was the most successful yet, with a contribution of $62,000 to Seattle Tilth. These fresh apples will appear in PCC’s produce departments this fall, timed with the harvest.
