Connecting Our Community Newsroom

Supporting and connecting with our community is important during times of need, and integral to our mission and position in the foodservice industry. Throughout the PRO*ACT network, partners are taking steps to not only keep fresh produce moving through the supply chain, but to support each other as a community.
