City Fruit Program Coordinator Summer Associate
 
 
 
City Fruit harvested over 46,000 pounds of fruit last year from residential fruit trees and public orchards, using over 920 volunteers. The fruit was donated to 29 Seattle area food banks and meal programs so that people living in poverty could have access to fresh local fruit. The Summer Associate’s role as a Community Harvester will be split between supporting our Harvest Team on harvests throughout the city; communicating with our network of food banks and community partners to coordinate fruit distributions; and planning Fruit for All Pop-Up’s in communities and in collaboration with our community partners. Project Background: Harvest VISTA, a program of Harvest Against Hunger, connects local growers, food banks and volunteers to secure fresh produce for distribution to thousands of people throughout Washington State. Harvest VISTA program finds new and innovative ways to decrease waste of fresh fruits and vegetables and increase the availability of nutritious produce to food bank clients.
