If you've ever wondered what it's like to be a superhero, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has the answer: healthy food.

The paper reports on a food drive by the Southeast Produce Council, an industry trade group, to benefit a children's hospital in the city.

Over the course of three days, the council's volunteers hand-delivered more than 14,000 pounds of produce to participants of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Strong4Life Superhero Sprint.

"From watermelons to peaches to berries to sliced apples and oranges to carroteenies to baby potatoes to mandarins to sweet corn to bananas to pineapple chunks, and coined cucumbers to grapes to pears to grape tomatoes, there was something for everyone," says Blair Greenhill, chair of the SEPC CHOA committee.

"We had more produce than we've ever had this year, and it's special watching the participants' excited looks as they grab healthy snacks to enjoy at the race and afterwards," Greenhill tells the Journal-Constitution.
