Mann Packing prepping for inaugural Tour de Fresh ride to Anaheim

Mann Packing Co. is sponsoring a three-man team in the first Tour de Fresh event next month.

The four-day cycling event will take produce industry member participants 275 miles along the California coast travelling to Anaheim for the PMA Fresh Summit show.
Not only will this ride be a test of endurance for the 40 riders, but serves as a cause marketing event. The funds raised will benefit the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools campaign by placing salad bars in 40 schools across the country.

“This is a cause that’s near and dear to our hearts at Mann Packing,” said Craig Grantham, rider and team captain for Team Mann. “In the spirit of Mann’s history of philanthropy, what better an opportunity to help influence the health and well-being of children than providing them with an opportunity to have a healthful and nutritious lunch each day at school.

“Myself, and fellow Mann team members Rodman Bittner and Danny Goforth, are excited for this opportunity to represent Mann’s—and to represent the produce industry in this worthy cause.”

The rider’s will leave Carmel, Calif., on Monday, Oct. 13 and arrive in Anaheim on Thursday, Oct. 16. Anyone interested in learning more about the event may visit Donations starting at $5 may be made through this website.
Additionally Mann’s will be having a fundraising lunch on Friday, Sept. 26. at Mann’s cooler facility and offices located at 1250 Hansen Street in Salinas from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A donation of $10 will buy a barbecue lunch including a Swiss sausage sandwich, fresh vegetables, chips, cookie and water.
