The wonderful citrus-y, banana-y, crisp flavors come flowing in fruit crates to the north –

-along with a plethora of opportunities for fresh ‘winter salads’ and combination mixes -to fill in the temporary lack of the common veggies that can be grown in our backyards (save a few winter flavors like kale)…

What kinds of fresh produce are we looking for on our local produce shelves for the holidays?

Cranberries, mandarin oranges, grapefruit, pear varieties – like the anjou pears which are believed to have originated in Europe near France, bananas, plumspomegranates – kiwi and clementines.

Pomegranate arils which originated in the Middle East sprinkle brightly over crispy endive, orange slices from the subtropicals contrast in color with the dark green curls of kale, root vegetables mix with vines in order to produce more flavorful salads and wines, and artisan breads and holiday pies.

Such a rainbow variety of fruits and naturally healthy sweets come flowing in from a global effort to fill the seasonal nutritional deficits in our winter diets.

It’s like the whole world comes together in order to put a peaceful mix of bounty on your plate, just in time for Christmas.

However, it is important to make sure that the producers of those wonderful winter fresh foods – workers of many different backgrounds, shades of skin-colors, and cultures –  have basic human rights – and are not forced participants of offshore slavery for the sake of your holiday dinner tables.

It is important to make sure that they sleep in beds, have access to healthcare – are eating enough themselves,

-and can afford to send their own children to school.

It is important to make sure that they are not exporting the food that is needed by hungry bellies in their own nations.

So this season, as you enjoy your winter salads, please remember the rights of the children around the world.

Find out where your favorite flavors originated and consider making a donation for the the rights of the children there – or just make a donation to support our work – and we will disperse your help accordingly.

As Aristotle said, “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit – is sweet.”
