and it's not just "city kids" and "vegetables" thing. It's a universal thing.

I think what ends up obviously happening with the pantries is that they tend to look for "non-perishables", and that often means dried pastas and rice. But what more and more orgs are doing is partnering so they can include some fresh produce in with those pantry staples. But then there is that issue of having to do more meal prep work with fresh produce and if you are a shift-worker, that may mean having to prep and freeze/refrigerate meals for heating up at the "traditional" meal times.
