United Fresh Start Foundation’s annual FreshStart Conference is set for Jan. 14-16 at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Ariz.
In addition to a golf tournament and gala dinner, the event features a silent and live auction benefitting the foundation, and general sessions and workshops focused on increasing fresh fruit and vegetable accessibility to children and families, according to a news release.
The conference includes United Fresh’s traditional volunteer leader meetings, and the recipient of United Fresh’s 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award will be recognized at the gala dinner.
“The FreshStart Conference is an opportunity to empower our industry, and focus attention on new and creative ways of cultivating the next generation of produce consumers,” Phil Muir, president and CEO of Muir Copper Canyon Farms and chairman of the foundation’s board of trustees, said in the release. “This year, I’m excited for attendees to experience a packed lineup of engaging events, networking with colleagues, and the opportunity to come together for a worthwhile cause.”
