Packing a nutritious punch
Attendees prepare sacks of fruits and vegetables for food bank during conference give-back event.
Volunteers at the CUNA Lending Council Conference played a role in teaching kids the importance of eating their fruits and vegetables during a give-back event Sunday.
About 20 conference attendees packed 2,054 bags of potatoes and Granny Smith apples into five-pound bags for the Orange County Food Bank’s Farm to Kids program.
The food bank goes into schools in low-income communities and teaches kids about nutrition and the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables. At the end of the program, kids receive a five-pound bag of produce.
