U.S.: Fruit Care Kits

We’re delivering snack kits to hospitals in the U.S. for health care workers that otherwise wouldn’t have time to get the snacks they need to keep going under high stress. Included on each kit are notes of hope and optimism from the employees here at Dole. Help us lift spirits by sending a word of encouragement to include in our care kits.

Keeping the Dole family safe and healthy

At our Philippines farms and within all our facilities, we’ve taken extra sanitization and safety measures.
