Our Mission: Eliminate food deserts and make it easier for ALL people to access healthier food options
What is a food desert
Food deserts are regions where people have limited access to healthful and affordable food. This may be due to having a low income or having to travel farther to find healthful food options.
How we fight food deserts
Flora currently fights food deserts by donating boxes to families and organizations that reside in these areas. These donations boxes are funded by proceeds that we receive from sales, and sponsorships from large corporations and businesses.
All my life, I embraced healthy habits. But when I got to college, healthy eating was (and still is) an obstacle to all. "Why is this?" I asked. The more I learned, the more I wanted to create change. So naturally, I began thinking.
Tapping into my love of fresh fruit, health and wellness, and wanting to make healthy eating more convenient for all people. Flora Fruit Company was born. I stared in my parents living room (thanks Mom and Dad) and now we are the best produce delivery company in Wisconsin. We've created a lot of change and impacted a lot of lifes, but our work is not done.
I can still remember the first box I ever delivered. The smile on their face and the fulfilment in my heart was indescribable. That's when I knew what my purpose was. To change the world through food.
Come help change the world with me.
