Did you know that just in a 1.5 mile radius around SJSU, there are over 3,000 fruit trees? Instead of letting fruits go to waste, Garden to Table organizes volunteers to pick and donate them. They assess, harvest, and donate these fruits to the Olinder Food Program and Five Wounds Church. On average, they harvest 500 pounds of fruit per week.
We will work with Garden to Table by picking fruit in downtown San José and pack them into boxes to donate to local food programs.
Bring gloves, clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and water.
