Fighting Hunger Through Our Donate-A-Crate Program

As the holidays approach, we want to thank you for your business, but also share how The FruitGuys Donate-a-Crate program makes it easy to forward your fruit delivery to your local charities during office closures.

Each year our clients generously donate hundreds of crates of fresh fruit to organizations that support people in need in their local communities. It’s easy to do. If your office plans to close for the holidays (or any other time of year), instead of canceling your delivery, just call 1-877-FRUIT-ME (877-378-4863) and we’ll deliver your fruit to a local charity on your behalf. There is no additional cost for this delivery.

See our list of community partners in the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix, Seattle, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, and Texas—Or let us know if there’s a local nonprofit you’d like to support.

Thanks to the generosity of so many customers, our Donate-a-Crate program provides thousands of people each year with healthy farm-fresh fruit. In 2018, a record-breaking total of 688 boxes—more than 34,000 servings of fruit—were sent to nonprofit organizations in our clients’ local communities. Since 2009, customers have forwarded about 260,000 servings of fruit to those in need!

“The Donate-a-Crate program that The FruitGuys created is greatly appreciated by our clients. Not only is the quality wonderful, the boxes include varieties that our clients normally don’t get a chance to try,” said Michael McCormick, director of operations for San Francisco–based Project Open Hand, which produces 2,500 meals each day and provides groceries to an average of 125 people daily, including critically ill and senior residents in San Francisco and Oakland. “Thank you, FruitGuys, for your continued support. And thank you to all FruitGuys clients that think of us each year when they choose a recipient for their fruit boxes.”

If you’re closed or minimally staffed over the holidays (or simply want to “fruit it forward” at any time of year), instead of canceling your delivery, give us a call at 1-877-FRUIT-ME (877-378-4863), and we’ll set up a one-time or recurring donation for you—at no extra cost. Please give us two business days’ notice, so we can plan accordingly.
