The FruitGuys GoodWorks mission is to give back from seed to need. Our program has two components, The FruitGuys Community Fund and The FruitGuys Donation Programs. The FruitGuys Community Fund supports the small farms that grow our food, and The FruitGuys Donation Programs, which aims to reduce food waste and feed those in need.
This is a story of how The FruitGuys is able to give back, because of our business with you. We call this program, FruitGuys GoodWorks. The FruitGuys donates thousands of pounds of fruit to local charities all across the country each year. In addition to donating what we don’t pack here, customers can Donate-a-Crate to a charity of their choice to help give others the access to farm fresh fruit.
Since 2012, The FruitGuys Community Fund has given grants, up to $5,000, to small farms and agricultural non-profits to help with sustainability efforts in the ways that they grow their food. These grants allow farmers to make improvements and try new techniques that will impact the fruits we fill out boxes with as well as having positive impacts on the environment.
