The United Nations declared 2021 the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables to emphasize among other things the importance of healthy diets that include fruits and vegetables, and to raise awareness about high levels of fruit and vegetable loss and waste in supply chains.

“I’m a big fan of fruits and veggies,” said Kevin Blackston, proprietor of Philosateleian Post, which is based in San Antonio, Texas. “I hope this new stamp will encourage people to eat more fresh produce, and I am excited about participating in World Local Post Day by issuing it.”

World Local Post Day is sponsored by the Local Post Collectors Society. Participating local post operators each year issue special stamps focused on a specific topic or theme, with the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables being selected as the topic for 2021.
