On April 23, the Laurel Police Department received free produce boxes from the Produce Alliance Foundation, the charity division of Produce Alliance, a national produce distributor based in Chicago.
The foundation’s Produce Box Project: Nourish Our Frontlines provided boxes of fruits and vegetables to the officers as they left their shifts in recognition of their hard work and risks they are taking during the coronavirus pandemic.
Deliveries from Produce Box Project: Nourish Our Frontlines have served over 4,000 frontline workers and over 60,000 pounds of vegetables and fruit, according to a statement. The project is possible due to donations by Patrice King Brickman, CEO of Inspire Capital and the Patrice King Brickman Family Foundation.
