Each year, The FruitGuys GoodWorks program supports people, projects, and good health from the field to the table, and 2013 was a record year for giving. In keeping with the long-held tradition of providing healthy food to those who might not otherwise have access to it, The FruitGuys donated more than 616,000 pounds of produce to charitable organizations across the country through weekly donations to food pantries in San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Phoenix.
Meta Dunn was driving to work at The FruitGuys Chicago warehouse listening to radio reports of the devastation from the massive tornado that destroyed miles of Moore, Oklahoma, killing 24 people including 9 children, when she thought, “What can we do to help?”
How can I donate my box to charity?
During the 2011 holiday season, generous FruitGuys' customers provided thousands of people fresh fruit at 22 community-based organizations across the country.
FruitGuys customers giving to those in need
Closed for the holidays? Why not give something back to those in need. Instead of putting your order on hold, our Donate-A-Crate program lets you send your fresh fruit to a worthy non-profit organization in your area serving those less fortunate than ourselves. In 2008, FruitGuys clients donated more than 180 crates to food-banks and programs for families in need between the Thanksgiving and New Years holidays.
