Astro’s Commitment to Charitable Giving

Astro Food Service, Inc. is committed to giving back to our community by supporting those in need. In addition to our giving campaigns, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of our “World’s Harvest” brand of fresh cut fruits and vegetables goes back to the community as well. By supporting our brand, our customers are in turn supporting the greater Los Angeles community. Here are some of the recent contributions we have made to charitable organizations in our area:
