Rescuing & Sharing Fruit Across Canada

I’m excited to see that all across Manitoba and Canada, fruit-rescuing organizations like Fruit Share are popping up. While each may be operated slightly different, the goal of rescuing and sharing fruit is pretty much the same.

The combined efforts of these organizations is more fruit for those who love and need it, and less waste and mess for those who have too much of it – a win/win/win.

Our friends at Hidden Harvest Ottawa have put together this chart of established fruit-rescuing groups across Canada. We’ve added a Manitoba segment and added it to the top of the list to showcase the communities that are setting up their own fruit-rescuing programs.

Volunteer Interview – Sagan Morrow

Sagan Morrow is a professional freelance editor and writer. She has been part of Fruit Share since she became its inaugural summer harvest coordinator in 2011 – before she had ever been on a pick! At the time, she was looking for work in project management for a non-profit, community-based group.

After her summer as coordinator, Sagan joined the Fruit Share Advisory Committee and was instrumental in those first years of growth. Time constraints forced her to step away for a couple of years, but now she is back as our Blog Manager.
