Event Description

Want to have fun outdoors while helping to feed the hungry?  Then join us as we harvest fruit (oranges, lemons, etc.) which will be donated to local foodbanks and organizations to feed the hungry!  This is a great way to make a difference - as we will be harvesting fruit that would have otherwise gone to waste.  The event will be in Placentia and is being coordinated with The Harvest Club/OC Food Access Coalition.

Where to meet / Food afterwards!

This event will begin at 10:00am at a private residence in Placentia.  We will send out an e-mail with the address to all volunteers that have signed up in the days before the event.  After the event, we will probably be really hungry;  to address this inevitable development, we will go get some food / late lunch nearby! 

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact the event organizer, Devendra, at 510.435.3054.

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered for the 'Fruit Harvest for the Hungry' event on Sunday in Placentia. Your hard work yielded some juicy results: nearly 500 lbs of fruit were harvested for local foodbanks! Plus we got to learn about the existence of and taste tangelos!

If you cannot make the event, then please update your RSVP to 'No', so that those on the Waitlist may attend in your place. Thanks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
