SALT LAKE CITY — The city is seeking volunteers to help ensure locally grown fruit doesn't go to waste.
Each year, fruit goes uneaten and falls into streets and yards. As part of an initiative to reduce food waste, Salt Lake City has partnered with TreeUtah, Green Urban Lunchbox, Avenues Fruitshare and Salt Lake CAP.
Volunteers help harvest, diverting portions of the collected fruit to the homeowner, local food pantries and their own kitchens.
Harvest events are held Tuesday mornings and evenings, throughout the weekend, and are also available as a group activity. Interested volunteers should add their names to the Fruit Share program volunteer list at www.slcgov.com/node/1656.
Interested volunteers can contact Savannah Wake at email@example.com or 801-535-6202.
