My family really likes onions. We like them fried, pickled, roasted and raw, and always make sure to have plenty on hand. When my husband picked up a bag from the store today, I noticed that they were Real Sweet Onions (https://www.realsweet.com/). I also noticed that they partner with Feeding America (https://www.feedingamerica.org/)and work to provide meals to families in need by sharing their onion crop in November and December.
According to their packaging, in 2002, John Shuman, President & CEO of Shuman Farms founded Produce for Kids, an organization dedicated to educating families about the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Since its start, the organization has raised more than $7 million to assist children and their families through this organization and through Feeding America.
I never would have thought that that onions would make such a difference in caring for our neighbors. The reliable onion, always used to make our food much more tasty and nutritious, is now being used to feed our hungry.
Sharing is a blessing for all involved.
It’s the little changes that make the biggest changes. Goldenbot
