Are you a fruit grower with extra fruit? Or someone who is wanting to do some fruit picking?
Fruit Share, based in Winnipeg, MB, pairs volunteer pickers with fruit growers to ensure that fruit crops are picked and eaten before falling to the ground and rotting. Join their online community called Fruit Connect to plan or attend a fruit pick.
What happens to all the fruit once it’s picked?
- 1/3 goes to the fruit growers
- 1/3 goes to the volunteer picker(s)
- 1/3 is donated to a community organization
