Our annual Fruit & Nut Fundraiser kicks off on October 22nd!  The Florida Farm Bureau cooperates with states across the US to provide us with the best quality products like Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit and California mandarins.  These quality-guaranteed fruits and attractively packaged gourmet nuts make healthy treats and gift-giving ideas for the holidays. 

Students will receive sales packets in class on Monday, October 22nd.  All orders are due back Friday, November 16th.

NEW this year…

We’ve added Dewey’s holiday treats to our Fruit & Nut fundraiser!  Pair your favorite fruit and nut items with Dewey’s cookies and cake to make great holiday gifts for neighbors, friends, and family.  Select a variety of items from each sales brochure and create your own holiday gift baskets!  Use them for snack trays to share when you gather with friends and family.  Or just keep them all for yourself!  Just think about these tasty combinations…

Clementines + Moravian Ginger Spice Cookies
Apple/Pear Combo Box + Cheese Straws
Navel Oranges + Butter Toffee Peanuts + Moravian Sugar Cake
Chocolate Nut Gift Pack + Moravian Sugar Cookies

The combinations are practically endless!  It’s a little bit healthy, a little bit indulgent, and A LOT OF DELICIOUS!

  • More mandarins!  Mandarin clementines have been substituted for tangerines in the combo boxes.
  • 10 lb bag of grapefruit is now available for preorder.
  • 10 lb bag of Navel Oranges will be packaged in a reusable cotton mesh bag. 

We’re excited about these changes and additions and hope you will be, too!
