FPFC's faux virtual luncheon

fpProduce professionals will be unable to attend the June Fresh Produce & Floral Council Membership Luncheon at the Sheraton Cerritos Hotel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a number of FPFC members took to the internet for a virtual get-together, sharing some favorite photos — all the while social distancing, and some even wearing masks. Afterward, the diligent members immediately walked to their respective sinks and washed their hands, singing “Happy Birthday To You” — twice, of course.

The next FPFC membership luncheon is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 5, while the FPFC Southern California Golf Tournament is set to tee off Aug. 19.
