Welcome to the Citrusgleaners Program, offered by Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank, a leading organization in Community and Society - Philanthropy. In this comprehensive program, we are dedicated to reducing food waste while providing nutritious options to those in need. Through our commitment to making a positive impact in the community, we invite you to learn more about the Citrusgleaners Program and discover how you can get involved.

About the Citrusgleaners Program

The Citrusgleaners Program aims to address the issue of food waste by partnering with local citrus farmers and volunteers to harvest surplus citrus fruits. These fruits are then distributed to individuals and families in our community who struggle with food insecurity. By ensuring that these nutritious resources do not go to waste, we can make a significant difference in the lives of those who need it most.

How Does the Citrusgleaners Program Work?

Our dedicated team of volunteers works closely with local citrus farmers to identify orchards that have an excess harvest. Once the surplus is identified, our volunteers skillfully gather the fruits, ensuring they are safe for consumption and meet our quality standards.

After the harvest, the citrus fruits are brought back to our facility, where they are sorted, cleaned, and packaged. This meticulous process ensures that only the freshest and healthiest fruits are provided to our community members, promoting their well-being through accessible and nutritious options.

Impact and Benefits

The Citrusgleaners Program has made a significant impact in our community, creating a positive ripple effect that extends beyond reducing food waste. By bringing together local farmers, volunteers, and community members, the program fosters a sense of unity and collaboration. It allows individuals to actively participate in making a difference and encourages a culture of giving back.

Through this program, we not only promote sustainable practices but also contribute to the greater cause of tackling food insecurity. By providing individuals and families with fresh citrus fruits, we empower them to make healthier food choices and improve their overall well-being.
