T&G Global discusses Tour de Fresh support

Tour de Fresh, presented by The California Giant Foundation, celebrates the sixth year of fresh produce companies uniting to ride more than 300 miles over four days to benefit the Salad Bars to Schools initiative.

The 2019 fundraiser will run Oct. 12-16.

Brock Nemecek, North American marketing manager at T&G Global, is returning as a premier sponsor for the second time. Nemecek acknowledges that not every child has the opportunity or access for healthier meal options. Sponsoring events like Tour de Fresh is the key to ending this issue among students in America.

“My nieces and nephews are fortunate in that they have access to the freshest produce, not to mention an uncle and other family members who regularly encourage them to try the wide variety of fruits and vegetables that are available to them,” said Nemecek. “We sponsor the Tour de Fresh to deliver that same experience to students across the country who may not live in a household that is so passionate about produce.”
