Where does the fruit come from?

FruitShare: The fruit you will receive is harvested in our FruitShare program. This program actively works to reduce food waste while feeding those in need. We coordinate groups of volunteers to harvest previously unused trees in the Salt Lake Valley. The volunteers keep some, the homeowners keep some, and the majority is donated to local hunger relief efforts.

 

Why are we selling it? Our FruitBox and Canner’s CSA programs are a unique way for us to become more self-reliant as an organization. By purchasing a FruitBox, you are directly supporting this program.
