Pick Fruit on Weekdays in Valley Center for San Diego's Food Insecure!

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

Join us on a local North County grove from 9am - 11:30am on Monday - Thursday mornings year around. This volunteer opportunity is for people of all ages and gets you out with the butterflies and bees, picking citrus by hand or with a picker pole and preparing it for transport.

This position is influential in actively picking healthy produce for San Diego’s food insecure and preventing this excess from going to waste. Volunteers learn how to utilize picking poles to reach fruit and become part of produce rescue through community-driven work. This position allows volunteers to experience firsthand the tactical aspect of food recovery principles and become ambassadors of sustainable food systems.
