SIOUX FALLS, SD – In response to produce shortages caused by the COVID-19 situation, The Fruit Truck is extending its strawberry delivery season and bringing more fresh-picked Florida strawberries to communities across the region.
“There is a lot of uncertainty right now. With empty shelves and produce shortages in local grocery stores, we want to do everything we can to continue to make fresh fruit available to our customers,” said Irina Kleinsasser, CEO of The Fruit Truck. “Our food is safe. Our strawberries are only handled by the farmer who picks them, and our truck drivers are food-safe certified by the FDA.”
Fresh-picked Florida strawberries from The Fruit Truck will be delivered to communities over the next several weeks. The cost is $27 for an 8 to 9 lb. flat or 2 flats for $50. Customers are asked to reserve strawberries online at MyFruitTruck.com and pick them up at the truck when it comes to town. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ups are welcome.
“Our delivery stops are outdoors in large, open-air spaces. This is safer than a store environment, allowing our customers to distance themselves from others,” Kleinsasser said.
The Fruit Truck, which is based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, works with farmers that hand-pick and ship the best fruit from their orchards to communities across the country in order to bring fresh, flavorful produce directly to local families.
The Fruit Truck is extending deliveries to over one hundred communities in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Delivery schedules for each state can be found at MyFruitTruck.com.
The Fruit Truck is the new standard for the Farm-to-Family way of buying good food. Based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, The Fruit Truck and The Fruit Truck Store offer bulk, farm-direct produce at an affordable price. Products are shipped directly to states across the Midwest all throughout the year, allowing customers to go directly to the truck to pick up their order. The Fruit Truck is the best way to enjoy the Farm-to-Family experience.
