City Fruit - Program Coordinator Summer Associate VISTA
 
 
 
City Fruit serves Seattle residents experiencing food insecurity by providing organic, local fruit that is often not available at food banks and meal programs. Through our Harvest Program, we harvest thousands of pounds of fruit from trees on privately owned-land as well as from trees in public spaces like parks, and distribute this locally-grown fruit to over 25 food banks and meal programs and through our Fruit-For-All pop-up stands, where we distribute fruit directly to the public for free. Annually, we serve about 25,000 Seattle families and individuals. The Summer Associate will build the capacity of our Harvest Program by harvesting from fruit trees on private and public properties across Seattle, distributing fruit to neighbors experiencing food insecurity through partnerships with food pantries, meal programs, and community partners. Additionally, the Summer Associate will conduct community outreach by tabling at our Fruit-For-All farm stands located at farmers markets, parks, and community centers. This AmeriCorps opportunity is a project of Harvest Against Hunger, which connects local growers, food banks and volunteers to secure fresh produce for distribution to thousands of people throughout Washington State. The Harvest VISTA program finds innovative ways to decrease waste of fresh fruits and vegetables and increase the availability of nutritious produce for food bank clients. The VISTA SA program will work in an intensive level of summer service for 10 weeks.
