Description

Treasure Coast Food Bank invites the public to a special Food for Thought tour and luncheon at its produce processing plant. The tour will highlight the future of feeding the Treasure Coast featuring locally sourced, nutritious produce.

The produce processing plant enables Treasure Coast Food Bank to significantly increase the amount of fresh, nutritious food for people who are food-insecure. It is the heart of Treasure Coast Food Bank's Florida Agriculture and Nourishment Collaborative, a program that has created jobs and training opportunities, and provided a new market for area farmers.

The produce processing plant extends the shelf life of produce, thus expanding the number of people who have access to it through two systems- a wash/chop/packaging system to convert whole produce into pre-cut portions, and a cook/vacuum-pack system to convert raw vegetables into ready-to-use products, such as tomato sauce, sauteed vegetables, or soups. During summer, the focus is on preparing hundreds of nutritious meals for area children fed through Treasure Coast Food Bank's Summer Meals program.

The event includes a lunch featuring the same fresh produce and hand-made sandwiches and wraps that are helping the kids in the Summer Meals program eat healthy. The tour and lunch are free, but registration is required, and space is limited. To reserve a spot, please contact Rebecca Rodriguez at rrodriguez@tcfoodbank.org or 772-446-1757.
