Helping the Helpers Keep
the Country Whole
At the outset of the COVID-19 crisis, long-standing clients Ryan Scheiber & Matt Quirie, former coworkers at ROI DNA, asked us to challenge our clients & community to purchase our fruit to support the people on the front lines of this pandemic. Ryan’s wife is an ER nurse. Since then, generous donors have purchased more than 354,000 servings of fruit that we have delivered to healthcare and hospital workers, food banks, and school meal distribution sites.
Mr. Rogers called them “The Helpers,” the people who help those in need during a crisis. Please consider helping The Helpers by sending them healthy fresh fruit. We have more than 70 hospital and hunger relief partners across the country who are helping those in need. All of our food distribution partners have told us of the unprecedented need they are experiencing.
For every purchase of $1=2 servings of fruit will be sent to the people who need it most. Thank you so much for your support of those in need during this unprecedented time.
Chris Mittelstaedt, Founder and CEO The FruitGuys
Donation Delivery Timeline: Hospital deliveries will continue as possible and as needed. We continue to add new donation partners each week. Your donation may be sent to a charity or location in need other than the one you designated in order to avoid fruit waste and distribute fruit more evenly to those in need. You will receive a receipt upon delivery of your donation indicating where your fruit was delivered.

Each week we donate all excess and imperfect fresh fruit to hunger relief organizations in the communities we serve, rather than re-selling it. Since 2000, The FruitGuys has donated more than 15 million servings of fresh fruit to food banks and charities across the country.
