EAT TEN FRUITS AND VEGGIES A DAY FOR 30 DAYS
WHAT IS N4TEN?
Produce Buzz and the New England Produce Council
are issuing a challenge to people in the Produce Industry to
eat ten servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day for 30 days
We hope that after thirty days, eating ten will become
a regular habit for all who participate.
Studies Continue to Confirm the Benefits of Eating Lots of Fresh Fruit and Veggies
The Recommended 5 a Day is Good But Studies Show 7-10 is Best
By Participating You Will Be Helping College Students Get Their Education
Dozens of authoritative studies are conducted every year showing conclusively that fresh fruits and vegetables help alleviate the effects of and prevent so many of the diseases that plague our modern world. Yet, most people do not get the recommended daily amount of fresh produce in their diet. We are asking Produce Industry professionals to lead the way and show people that getting your fruits and veggies is powerful medicine.
If you take the N4TEN challenge you will help provide scholarships for people who help grow and distribute the fresh produce that keeps us so healthy. When you take the challenge we ask you to donate whatever you can to The Nolan Foundation, sponsors of Produce Buzz and the N4TEN Challenge. The Nolan Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that provides scholarships to families who work in the produce industry. The foundation wants to honor those people who are working hard to grow and distribute the food that is most important to the health of people everywhere.
For many years the recommended amount has been five servings a day, but new research is showing that for optimal health we really need 7-10 servings a day. For the Produce Buzz challenge, we wanted to encourage participants in it to go for the very best to really see the difference fresh fruits and veggies can make.

You might be asking, “If people can’t get five each day, how could we expect them to eat ten?” It’s a fair question and we know it will take effort.

With just a few hours each week of planning and preparation you can make it happen. We are confident you will agree the investment in time was well worth it.
