  1. We are starting up a Breakfast, Snack and Motion Program at Earl Grey Community Centre. For the months of April-June, we will begin our 5 day/week program feeding 25 kids for breakfast and 60 for snack. We intend on continuing through the follow school year. How would we go about partnering with Fruit Share to get fresh fruit for our students?

    1. Thanks for touching base with us. We offer our volunteers a list of organizations that are willing to accept fresh picked fruit. You can email us and we’ll send you a form that lists all the info we need for our volunteers. Our volunteers decide with whom they share the fruit the day that they pick the fruit. There most likely wouldn’t be any fruit in the April to June time period – unless you’re interested in rhubarb. In the fall, there is the potential for some apples.

  2. Are there people who would like to pick? I have a tree of HI 12 pie apples that are falling by the day. I don’t have time to pick that tree but could donate the pickings to pickers.

    1. There probably are people interested in picking! You can register on Fruit Connect and subscribe for your a membership to share this opportunity with Fruit Pickers. Find details for signing up for your membership here: http://www.fruitshare.ca/home-2/fruit-connect/.

      Once you have your membership, you can advertise your fruit tree for picking on the Fruit Connect system for the dates you think/know it will be ready for harvesting. Other members who are fruit pickers can then sign up to pick your tree if they are interested.
