Pick Fruit to Reduce Hunger & Waste in San Diego!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: ProduceGood

Typical scene at a local private orchard
Volunteers pick fruit that is then donated to the food-insecure of San Diego through Feeding America San Diego or the San Diego Food Bank

Want a fun, outdoor giving experience that will result in delicious, healthy food for San Diego county children, families, veterans, seniors and homeless who do not know where their next meal is coming from? Come spend your Saturday morning picking fragrant fruit at a local orchard with us.

Not only will you be part of a group of volunteers that picks fresh, healthy fruit for those who need it most, but you will also be assuring that the fruit does not go to waste. A win/win. Hunger and CO2 reduced in one sweet step!

All ages and abilities welcome. Pick as much or as little as you are capable. All supplies provided.

We schedule our picks as local growers let us know their crops are ripe so we never have more than a few on our calendar at a time. Picks typically are scheduled for Saturday mornings from 9am - 12pm.

If you enjoy picking and want to spend your morning out on an orchard, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out to our Community Orchard Program Lead, Shannon, at producegood.shannon@gmail.com to learn more.

Sign up directly on our website https://producegood.volunteerhub.com/. Once you register as a volunteer you can register for events in our calendar. Choose a date and location that works best for you. Please note you must register and sign a waiver to join us. Sharing has never been sweeter!

Adults over 18. Children welcome when accompanied by adults.
