The Mecklenburg County Fruit & Veggie Coalition
(MCFVC) is excited to announce the selection of our 5 Fruit & Veggie SuperMoms! We had a great response to the contest and it was hard for our selection committee to decide, but we did so with pleasure!
The winning SuperMoms (left-right) are:
- Lissette Rodriguez, mother of 3
- Kacy Pleasants, mother of 2
- Cyrilla Neely, mother of 2
- Juawana Colbert, mother of 1
- Debra Dickson, mother of 2
We used five selection criteria to narrow down the applications:
- Are fruits/veggies a part of their family culture?
- Do they do their own gardening or go to farmers markets?
- Are they currently doing any nutrition or health promotions within the community?
- Do they educate their family about the benefits of fruits/veggies?
- Are the children involved in cooking or shopping for fruits/veggies?
Each of our winners has a unique story of how she encourages her family to eat and enjoy fruits and vegetables. Thank you to everyone who applied to the contest!
