FruitBox

A crate of fresh fruit for you every week! When you support our FruitBox program, you are also revitalizing urban spaces, preventing food waste, and feeding people in need.

How the Program Works

What you can expect.

For just $300, you can have the freshest fruit in your home every week for 12 weeks AND support a vital cause!

  • One milk crate 1/2 full of a variety of hyper seasonal fruit every week for 12 weeks (July-September)
  • Includes a mix of apricots, cherries, apples, pears, plums, grapes, peaches, and, on occasion, seasonal herbs*

*This list is not exhaustive, as there may be varieties included or some from the list excluded as this depends on what is ripe and ready for harvest in the valley. Some weeks may include more fruit and some weeks less, we believe that the amounts will balance out.

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.
