Our flagship gleaning program, CropSwap
, gives volunteers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to harvest excess fruit from residential orchards in San Diego County. The donated fruit is then transported by a major distribution agency, such as the San Diego Food Bank or Feeding San Diego, to local food pantries. Together with our fruit tree owners and volunteers, we are sharing the bounty of the county with food- insecure children, families, seniors, veterans, and the homeless of San Diego.
