Jan 30, 2018School districts to receive free salad bars through Potatoes USA campaign
Beginning Jan. 29, Potatoes USA is donating salad bars to one school district every week as part of its “21 Weeks of Giving” campaign. Representatives announced the news during the School Nutrition Association’s School Nutrition Industry Conference, an annual gathering of school foodservice operators and industry partners, taking place this year in New Orleans, Louisiana.
With over 280 salad bar donations to-date, the potato industry is the top commodity donor of the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools campaign through the United Fresh Start Foundation, said Potatoes USA.
Evangeline Parish School District of Louisiana was announced as the first district to be awarded a salad bar through the 21 Weeks of Giving campaign. Future salad bar recipients will be announced on Potatoes USA’s official school foodservice-focused Facebook page:facebook.com/PotatoesRaiseTheBar.
