CPABC Richmond/South Delta Chapter invites members, candidates and students to participate in Richmond’s Fruit Recovery Program offered by Richmond Food Security Society.
Volunteers will collect unused fruit, called a pick, from residential or community fruit trees and bushes.  The fruit will be donated to the Richmond Food Bank and other community partners. The harvest is split three ways between volunteers, fruit owners, and community partners.

Your volunteerism contributes to:

  • Reducing food waste;
  • Being active outside;
  • Meeting like-minded members & networking;
  • Discovering a new area in your local community;
  • And of course, enjoying some free organic fruit for all your hard work!
