Foundation Donor/Partner Since 2017
Chelan Fresh is a fruit marketing company that represents over 300 family-owned farms, growing premium apples, pears, cherries, and stone fruits in Washington State. A proponent of getting fresh fruits and vegetables in schools, Chelan Fresh began partnering with the Fuel Up to Play 60 health and wellness program in 2011. Since then, they have donated more than $750,000 to the cause, funding breakfast bars and salad bars in schools across the country. Chelan Fresh continues to support the Produce for Better Health campaign, educating consumers about the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Additionally, the company donates annually to the Washington Apple Education Foundation, funding scholarships that aid students along their Ag education journey. The growers who make up Chelan Fresh also actively give back, donating to food banks and other nonprofits in the communities where their workforce calls home.
