Harvest Fruit to Feed the Hungry!

  • Jun 15, 2013 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 Villa Park and is being coordinated with The Harvest Club/OC Food Access Coalition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to participate

To participate, click 'RSVP' and make sure to bring:

  • water
  • gloves, long sleeves, hat and sunglasses (or protective eyewear)
  • sunscreen and bee protection (if necessary)
  • closed-toed shoes are a must!
  • signed Liability Waiver and Photo Release form.  This form needs to be turned in the morning of the event before you begin harvesting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where to meet / Food afterwards!

This event will begin at 9:45am in Villa Park.  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.

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered for the 'Fruit Harvest for the Hungry' event on Saturday in Villa Park. Your hard work resulted in some phenomenal results: a One Brick record of approximately 2,000 lbs (1 ton!) of fruit was harvested for local foodbanks!

    I actually just found out that my friend is flying in from the east coast and needs a ride from the airport at noon on Saturday, so unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Hope it goes well!

    HOW MANY HOURS

    June 8, 2013

    • Dev

      Hi Patricia. Typically, the harvests last between 2-3 hours and then we go get lunch. Usually when we have a good turnout, the harvest goes faster.

    Thanks to those who have signed up so far! Just wanted to say that this is going to be the biggest harvest event of the year (and the biggest one we've organized so far). If you're new to One Brick - this would be a perfect event to come to.

    • Dev

      Hi Ola. I am not organizing a carpool, but you may want to try contacting others that are going if you would like to carpool. I will be sending an email with the street address of the event to all members in the days just before the event.
