What’s the Buzz about Fruit Share?

Welcome to new friends and familiar ones! We are looking forward to the 2014 season ahead. In the meantime, we thought this would be a great opportunity to share more information about the organization and what we are about.

 

The Back Story

The revolution began in the spring of 2010. Frustrated with fresh, local, nutritious fruit going to waste, and the desire to help others, Getty Stewart started Fruit Share in her South Osborne neighborhood. The inspiration to create Fruit Share came to Getty after reading an article about volunteer fruit rescuing operations in cities like Vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Victoria. During the first summer, 10 volunteers harvested over 1,600 pounds of fruit at 20 picks and calls started to come in from all over Winnipeg. By the second year, Fruit Share grew to a stunning 201 volunteers harvesting over 7,300 pounds of fruit from 153 registered fruit owners.

Spotlight on The Laurel Centre
