Got Fruit? Give Fruit!
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to harvesting excess fruit off of homeowners’ trees and donating it to a local food bank or mission.
Tangerine and Avocado Grove!
On the 25h and 31st of April, a homeowner in Bradbury let Fruit For All come pick her grove of tangerines and avocados. Over the two weekends we managed to pick 4,871 pounds of tangerines and 736 pounds of Avocados for a total of 5,607 pounds of fruit. We are so grateful to her for allowing us to do this. So many people have had fresh tangerines and avocados because of her.
Couldn’t Do It Without You!
Ever since February of 2011, Sam’s Club in El Monte has been providing Fruit For All with much needed banana boxes to put harvested fruit in.
Without them we would be having a hard time finding alternatives. On February 4, 2012, they really out did themselves by giving us over 130 banana boxes in one trip.
One of our 2011 clients connected us with Sam’s Club and we have been forever grateful to them and the guys in produce.
