  • Best Bang for your Buck: comparisons of Brown Box, Commercial purchased, and Processed Commodity foods will be discussed and reviewed.
  • Ways to spend your entitlement: Brown Box, Farm-to-School, Dept. of Defense Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (DODFFV), and Processing.
    • Each program will be reviewed for advantages and disadvantages if any.
  • Consultations: MRPC offers a one-hour one-on-one session signup for any CE in need of further assistance. Multiple days and times are available throughout the month of February.
