Resource Assistance for Youth

Here’s yet another option for you to consider when trying to decide what to do with extra fruit.

Resource Assistance for Youth

Resource Assistance for Youth (RaY) is a non-profit street-level agency working with street-entrenched and homeless youth up to the age of 29. It provides youth with what they need, on their terms, to better their lives by being the crucial link between street-entrenched youth and much-needed support services.

RaY uses donated fruit to prepare meals and fill food hampers.
