Employment & Career

City Fruit is a 501 c[3] non-profit gleaning organization founded with the mission of putting our urban orchards to its best and fullest use so that everyone in our community shares in the value of fruit.  City Fruit’s goals are centered on three central themes:

 

(1) Connecting people to the public orchards in their community and educating about their history and value

 

(2) Organizing a holistic harvest and distribution process that keeps fruit within the communities where they were grown

 

(3) Engaging in a collaborative process with community stakeholders to find the best practices for the long-term care and maintenance of the trees in this unique urban network of orchards

 

We’re currently hiring AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates to join our 2022 Harvest Team!  As an integral part of our harvest team, the associate will support the harvest of residential fruit trees and the distribution of fruit to partnering food banks and meal programs.  The associate will also outreach with community through farmers market stands, City Fruit’s free fruit pop-up stands, and more!  This is a great work opportunity for individuals looking to work outside this summer and for individuals seeking to learn more about our urban food system!  We welcome you to apply today!

We’d love to hear from you!  For general inquiries or questions about internship opportunities please contact [email protected].  To join the City Fruit community as a volunteer, contact [email protected].

 

City Fruit is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment.  This includes engaging staff, board members, interns, and volunteers in conversations about institutional racism and how our work can be aligned to resist and disrupt practices rooted in white supremacy and racism.  We value and welcome the diverse array of lived-experiences, perspectives, values, and identities that individuals carry with them.
