Volunteers needed to harvest community fruit April 30

Volunteers needed to harvest community fruit April 30

DAVIS - Call for volunteers to help harvest fruit! Village Harvest is an organization that picks fruit from backyard trees in Davis and donates it to local food agencies to feed the hungry in Yolo County.

Harvests are a fun and easy way to volunteer your time and see a tangible result of your effort. A typical harvest lasts three hours and yields 500-1,000 pounds of nutritious fruit that goes to families in need.

If you'd like to help out, the group will meet this Saturday, April 30 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. in the parking lot of the Nugget Market in south Davis, near Burger King. You must arrive at 9 a.m. sharp. To join this harvest, email linda.schwartz@villageharvest.org.
