North Bay Produce, Inc. To Donate Over 1,000 Cases of Apples


Michigan food banks and school programs receiving apple donations in time of need.

Traverse City, MI – North Bay Produce, Inc. is continuing their donation program when it matters the most. For the past 10 years, North Bay has been donating apples just before Easter to Food Rescue, which feeds most local food banks. “I really enjoy giving to Food Rescue because it helps so many people through all the food pantries.  Over the years we have been one of the largest contributors to Food Rescue and North Bay is very proud to be part of this organization,” Ken Korson, Apple Category Manager for North Bay Produce.

Food Rescue, a Goodwill of Northern Michigan program, collects soon-to-expire, fresh, healthy food and distributes it to 48 food pantries, shelters, and community meal sites same day, free of charge. Not only does this program help those in need, it reduces the amount of food waste which is a particular problem with fresh produce. To learn more about this organization and how you can help, visit This shipment of apples is set to arrive on April 2nd and will consist of 462 cases of bagged apples, equaling 20,000 pounds.

Simultaneously, North Bay will be donating apples to Southern Michigan School Programs beginning Friday, March 27th. This donation will consist of 600 cases of bagged apples, equaling 22,000 pounds. This is especially important right now since many children still rely on their schools for lunches during this crisis. North Bay Produce is planning on continuing this donation process throughout the spring in order to help feed our communities.
