Making Earth Day Bright!

By Molly McGlinchy April 25, 2017

Few things get the distribution center staff of the food bank more excited than seeing a load of fresh produce rolling up to our doors.  Why? Because we know that shortly after, it will be heading to the plates of families in our area.
We got that great feeling in spades recently when, in honor of Earth Day, our donation partner BrightFarms provided 200 cases of beautiful fresh greens to the Capital Area Food Bank.

Each case of greens was grown and packed locally in BrightFarms’ Culpepper, VA hydroponic greenhouse, meaning that the neighbors CAFB serves are getting some of the freshest veggies available. Greens are especially welcome at this time of year, since it’s early in the growing season and we often don’t receive these kinds of donations until later into the spring and summer.
Our thanks to BrightFarms for helping provide nutritious food for kids and families in our area!
