WANTED – Food Charities

We’re looking for organizations that accept perishable food donations to share our fruit with and to feature in our “Guide to Backyard Fruit”.

Fruit Share is expanding into six new neighbourhoods this summer.  That means we’re going to have a lot more fruit to share.  It also means we can help provide fresh, local, nutritious food to some of the 58,000 Manitobans that use food banks each month. 

But, no matter how big Fruit Share gets, we know Fruit Share volunteers will never be able to pick it all.  We also know that Winnipeg homeowners hate to see their fruit go to waste.  So, we’re also producing a “Guide to Backyard Fruit” that will help homeowners identify what’s growing in their backyards, how to use it and what to do with any left over fruit.  This guide will include a listing of as many organizations in Winnipeg that accept fresh fruit as possible.  Hence, the call for Food Charities.

More Apples for Agape Table

Last night, we beat the rain and cleared three more apple trees.  In the end, we added about another 450 lbs of apples to our tally.  
This morning, Agape Table got another two boxes of apples to share with their guests.
Thanks to our amazing volunteers and homeowners for making Fruit Share possible.

Agape Table Gets Apples

Agape Table has been serving hot meals to people in the inner city since 1980.  It is able to provide this service through the support of the Winnipeg community.  Fruit Share is proud to share some of its bounty with this great organization.

Mike, a volunteer with Agape Table gladly takes in one of the two big boxes of apples we brought earlier this morning.
