From COVID-19, to inflation, to Climate Change impact and food supply disruption, this year is closing on a challenging note for folks and families who face food-insecurity.
Starting November 30th until December 11th, follow us at @QuestFoodExchange and be part of #12DaysofQuest as we move through 12 food groups we’re hoping to secure, month-to-month, across Quest grocery markets in 2022. Today’s feature food is:
What do you know about carrots besides that they are crunchy and tasty? Carrots are a root vegetable often claimed to be the “perfect health food.” They are highly nutritious as they are a good source of fiber, calcium, and other vitamins and minerals. They are also extremely convenient as they can be eaten as a snack, included in salads, or a delicious stew. At Quest, we love products that are versatile and provide our clients with health benefits like a good amount of carrots does.
The Quest Difference:
At Quest, part of our mission is to ensure our clients have access to both nutritious and affordable food. No human being should be deprived of a well-balanced diet because they cannot afford it. That’s why we want to make sure all five of our markets are stocked with super-foods, like carrots, every single day.
Thanks to our Food Partners like Stable Harvest Farm we have been able to provide our clients with a good amount of local and organic carrots.
Help ensure Quest Clients have access to carrots and other critical grocery items 12 months of the year. Donate to Quest today! And stay tuned for Day 11 of #12DaysofQuest for some chicken facts.
