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:
Sweet, Sweet, Oranges!
Oranges are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that help maintain a strong immune system to help our bodies fight viruses like the seasonal cold. Just one medium orange contains 80% of the daily required vitamin C. No wonder oranges are commonly found in grocery markets all year-round, and we want Quest to be no exception to that.
The Quest Difference
The challenge with oranges is that they disappear quickly from our shelves. That’s not only because they’re delicious and high in demand but also because of our accessible pricing. The average cost of one pound of oranges goes for $1.99 in a traditional grocery store. At Quest, 1lb sells for $1.19.
Help ensure Quest Clients have access to apples and other critical grocery items 12 months of the year. Donate to Quest today! And stay tuned for Day 7 of #12DaysofQuest for your daily dose of grains!
