Share excess fruit with your community!
We harvest all kinds of fruit, and this year, are seeking to include early varieties like berries, cherries, and plums! Do you also have too many tomatoes? We can pick up already harvested excess tomatoes to distribute to food banks!

What We Do
Check out our Events Calendar to see what we're up to!

Harvest and Distribution

The heart of City Fruit is our harvest season, when we pick approximately 40,000 pounds of fruit annually to share with our community through food banks, meal programs, and farmer’s markets.

Fruit Tree Stewardship

We provide year-round tree care to fruit trees on private and public lands to ensure a bountiful harvest season. These services include pruning, mulching, integrated pest management, planting, and more. 

Education and Outreach

We teach the next generation of orchardists and food justice champions through programs and workshops from elementary youth to seniors. Our programs work afterschool, through the seasons, and on weekends.

City Fruit prioritizes the distribution of fruit to food banks and meal programs in order to support equitable access to healthy, local foods!  

We strive to share fruit with community partners located within 2-miles of where the fruit was harvested.
