Minneapolis, Minn. - March 21, 2018 - Wholesale Produce Supply, one of the largest wholesale distributors of fresh produce in the Upper Midwest, chose Open Arms MN as a charity recipient on behalf of Nora and Ashley's. The donation made to Open Arms will be able to support nearly 286 medically tailored, made-from-scratch meals for clients living with life-threatening illnesses.

The Nora and Ashley's brand has three main focuses: always made locally, giving back to the community and bringing fresh, convenient and nutritious products to Midwest consumers. For every package sold, Nora and Ashley's will make a donation to local hunger-related charities in the communities where its products are sold.

"Giving back to the community has always been important to our company so we decided to develop a brand that puts that at its forefront," said Reed Sibet, vice president of sales and marketing at Wholesale Produce Supply. "We hope to continue to grow this relationship with Open Arms and continue to support their cause."

Open Arms of Minnesota is a nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities.  The organization believes that food is medicine, and the work they perform makes a positive impact in the health outcomes of their clients. With the help of over 6,000 volunteers, Open Arms will cook and deliver more than 600,000 delicious meals this year to people living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), as well as their caregivers and dependents.

Nora and Ashley's products are locally made, locally grown when in season, and always give back to the community. The Nora and Ashley's line of veggie plates includes five classic unseasoned noodles and rices and four seasoned noodle and rice plates.  More information on the brand and products can be found on the Nora and Ashley's website:
