giving donations

When you shop Melissa’s, you purchase with purpose.

We are extraordinarily passionate about getting produce into your hands because we care!

This commitment is exemplified through our humanitarian efforts, participation in community events, and philanthropic initiatives.

Melissa’s ongoing partnering with nonprofits has already provided 200,000 meals to members of our community who had been directly or indirectly affected by Coronavirus. Additionally, 175,000 pounds of fresh produce has been donated to disaster relief efforts.

These donations wouldn’t have been possible without your continued support.

For decades, Melissa's Produce has worked to advance healthy eating by connecting people with fresh ingredients. We believe good food does more than help people survive; it helps them thrive.

Without proper nutrition, it's impossible for students to succeed in school, for athletes to perform, or for patients to fight disease.

By partnering with numerous nonprofits and local food banks, we are able to distribute food to those in need and create positive attitudes toward healthy living. In addition to supporting schools with fresh produce, we give our time and passion, including efforts such as planting school gardens and spending time in classrooms teaching children how to identify, prepare, and enjoy fruits and vegetables.

By providing education and access to nutritious foods, Melissa's seeks to make a positive impact on the overall health and well-being of our community and beyond.
