Fruitful Fundraising

posted on April 27, 2001

Parents -- Are you tired of buying a case of candy bars to raise money for your child's school?

A California entrepreneur has founded FreshSuccess Fruit 4U, a program that helps kids sell beautifully packaged premium fruit. The FreshSuccess program also comes with recipe ideas and lesson plans for reinforcing with kids, the importance of eating a balanced diet.

The program was started after it was learned some high quality fresh fruit often never makes it to the mass market because some varieties can't sustain the shipping and long shelf life.
