Turns backyard fruit trees into a valuable source of food for the community by harvesting otherwise wasted fruit. Increases the availability of healthy fruit for those in need, reduces food waste, and promotes local food security and volunteerism. Home owners can sign-up to have their excess fruit picked by volunteers to be distributed among tree owners, volunteer pickers, and local community organizations
