Fresh Produce Program
East Texas Food Bank’s Fresh Produce Program provides a reliable source of fresh fruits and vegetables to our partner agency network, and the low-income clients they serve. ETFB collects produce from a variety of sources. The majority is donated from growers in the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas, along with several other locations, who agree to donate their abundance to food banks. In addition to produce sourced directly from growers, ETFB also receives large quantities of donated produce from retail distribution centers, and through our highly successful Retail Store Donation Program, which collects donated food from 57 retail stores across East Texas. Since the Fresh Produce Program is part of ETFB’s core work of distributing food to partner agencies, it impacts virtually all the low-income clients they serve. ETFB provides emergency food assistance to more than 173,000 clients each year through the Fresh Produce Program.
