Fruits, veggies and DNO celebrate school lunch heroes
Fresh fruits and vegetables came to life to celebrate the hard work and dedication of school lunch heroes on National School Lunch Hero Day, May 7.
Studies show that some of the healthiest meals of the day for school children come from school lunch programs because many school children don’t have access to healthy fruits and vegetables at home. The DNO team is committed to continuing to raise awareness to continue to work toward easy access for fresh-cut produce options to support school meal foodservice providers.
“Providing access to fresh fruits and vegetables is at the core of what we do,” said Alex Dinovo, president of DNO. “Yes, we like to have fun — but at the end of the day it’s all about how we can continue to generate awareness about healthy nutritious options for students. We applaud all of the school lunch providers who are dedicated to the same cause.”
The video is a fun way the company has developed internal camaraderie while sharing excitement for the industry. Through Freshealth, the fresh-cut division of DNO, individually wrapped produce has become a very important menu item to support the USDA recommendations for healthy lunch meal portions. The Freshealth sales team is committed to elevating the awareness and the fun for the K-12 meal space.
