The Fresh Produce & Floral Council is dedicated to the success of the produce and floral industries and actively supports other industry organizations with sponsorships and in-kind donations, including the Produce For Better Health Foundation and the Produce Marketing Association's Foundation for Industry Talent.
Because we are in an industry that is uniquely positioned to help the needy, we also support--and encourage our members to support--the Orange County Food Bank with product donated during our Southern California membership luncheons and with money raised during our annual Holiday Luncheon and Charity Auction. Past Holiday Luncheons have also benefited Caterina's Club, the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
The Fresh Produce & Floral Council is also an ardent supporter of City of Hope National Medical Center, dedicating a fundraising luncheon to their cause each year. Members of the FPFC also support City of Hope on their own, forming teams for the Walk for Hope Against Breast Cancer among other activities and donations.
