Last week, the Produce for Kids team had the privilege of visiting the Shuman Produce farms for the start of Vidalia® onion season. We got to visit the offices, tour the packing facilities and take a stroll through some of the farms. Did you know that Produce for Kids was founded by John Shuman, president of Shuman Produce? Back in 2002, he had a vision to bring the produce industry together to help support children’s charities.
