Show the Fruit Share Love

Do you love Fruit Share? Well now you can show us just how much you care by committing some time to help keep Fruit Share going!

Other than our part-time summer coordinator, the Fruit Share you know and love is run by a small group of committed volunteers. This summer we are looking for a few more people to join the team and keep this great thing going.

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.
