About Murphy’s Produce with Purpose
From an early age, Jim Murphy learned the value of an honest day’s work alongside his father, Jack, a South Bay farmer. He spent his boyhood summers jumping in the back of his dad’s pickup truck to head to the fields and pick fresh fruits and vegetables. Given the opportunity to meet so many local farmers, Jim soon realized the prevalence of hunger throughout the region. He has made it his goal, mission and passion in the years since to help families fight food insecurity.
With a wealth of experience in both wholesale and retail produce distribution, Jim has built a network of connections to assist in charitable outreach while raising awareness. Partnerships with local produce distributors and the San Diego Food Bank, have assisted in this mission to build a Super Pantry in the South Bay.
