Wish Farms Donates to Feeding America

Feeding America is an organization that fights hunger in the United States by engaging the community and networking with food banks nationwide. Wish Farms wanted to get involved to help families in need.

When blueberries are sorted and packaged on the packing line, the berries that are a bit too soft or not ripe enough are kicked out and sorted into separate containers. These particular berries are labeled, “cull blueberries”.

This fruit is still nutritious and flavorful but we are not able to package and ship to customers because of the shelf-life.  This season we donated the cull blueberries to Feeding America Tampa Bay, so the fruit could be shared and enjoyed by families within our community.
