That's a wrap!

It was definitely a busy summer for Fruit for Thought!

Many thanks go out to our dedicated volunteers and to all of those who provided donations to our organization!  We could not have done it without you!

Fruit for thought harvested over 30 apple trees from July to September and estimates that close to 3000lbs of apples were picked and shared amongst the community!

We have over 20 people volunteer to help harvest and preserve!

We donated baked goods and preserves as well as fresh fruit to The Food Bank, Carmichael outreach, Transition House, Souls Harbor, Daisy’s Pantry, HELP, REACH, Salvation Army and the YWCA Women’s Shelter.

We're already gearing up for next year and are excited for a winter to plan and prepare!  

 Keep tuned to the blog for special features and updates!

We're Full!

Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept any more trees at this time!

Due to high demand and a limited number of volunteers, we simply cannot keep up with the harvest.

For those that were unable to register this year, we encourage you to contact us next year!

Thank you for your interest and support!

We are still registering trees, bushes, rhubarb etc... and it's not too late to volunteer!

Welcome to Fruit for Thought!

We harvest unwanted fruit from local trees and bushes around the city. A portion of the fruit goes to owner, a portion to volunteers and the rest to local shelters and food banks! We will also be preserving a portion of the fruit collected to create delicious jellies and chutneys!

To donate your tree or volunteer, email

Our mission is to create awareness of environmentally sustainable practices while reducing food waste. 
We look forward to a fruit filled summer!
