As farmers markets begin to bustle and produce stands pop-up along the roadside, celebrating National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable month presents a fresh and delectable invitation for a summer meal. Whether from a stand, you picked-it-yourself at a local farm, grew it in your backyard, or had a friendly neighbor knock on your door, ‘lettuce’ take a bite of all that is yummy.
Much of our work at T4CI lends itself to healthy, fresh produce that focuses on sustainability. One of our projects, The Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative, for example, is working to get fresh fruits and veggies in religious communities and their food pantries. And the central T4CI team in Oakland is always up to anything fresh and edible.
Here are the office favorite fruits and vegetables:
- Ty: Mango and Chickpeas
