Local produce company, Rio Fresh, says produce sales came to a stand-still at the peak of the pandemic.   

“It happened so quickly and a lot of situations we had truckloads of produce on the road, or just arriving at the places and they basically said we can’t do anything with this, everything has shut down here,” said saleswoman Courtney Schuster.
