Since its beginning in 2010, Fruit Share has been managed by a remarkable team of volunteers who love rescuing and sharing fruit. Our passion for all things fruit drove us to grow Fruit Share.
Along the way we’ve worked with and had great support from organizations like Sustainable South Osborne,CCEDNet, Food Matters and funders like the Winnipeg Foundation, Assiniboine Credit Union, the United Way and the Manitoba Alternative Food Research Alliance.
