Want a fun, outdoor giving experience that will result in delicious, healthy food for SD county children, families, veterans, seniors and homeless who do not know where their next meal is coming from?

Not only will you be part of a group of volunteers that provides 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.

If you enjoy picking and want to be trained to be a pick leader, we would love to work with you to accomplish. Email garth@producegood.org to learn more.

Go to www.producegood.org and click volunteer. Once you register as a volunteer you will be able to signup for events in our calendar. Choose a date and location and register. You must register and sign a waiver to join us. Sharing has never been sweeter!

Adults over 18. Children welcome when accompanied by adults.
