Q: I've heard The FruitGuys has a GoodWorks program for giving back, how does it work?
A: Since our start in 1998, The FruitGuys has found ways to give back to the community. Our GoodWorks program consists of direct donations that each FruitGuys facility makes to local food pantries (in 2013, we gave more than 500,000 pounds of produce!) and client donations made through our Donate-A-Crate program to their favorite charities (in 2013, clients generously donated 19,000 servings of fruit.) Read our report on GoodWorks.
In 2012, we created the non-profit The FruitGuys Community Fund to provide grants to small farms for sustainability projects. The Fund, a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives, is accepting donations to help small farms survive and thrive. Learn more about The FruitGuys Community Fund .
