The CAN DO

Challenge

School foodservice operators show us what they "CAN DO" with USA-grown canned pears in our annual CAN DO Challenge!

USA-grown canned pears are the world’s most flavorful and flexible fruit. (At least we think they are!) So we asked K-12 schools to show off all that they can do. Our annual CAN DO Challenge winners showed off their creative, unexpected and just plain goooood recipes featuring canned pears. Join us in celebrating these winning recipes!
