I recently moved into a new home with a huge plum tree. Since it’s just myself and my son, I was really excited to be able to share our fruit with the community. Being able to borrow harvesting equipment from FIFABQ made the process easy, and I got to talk to my four-year-old about why we were sharing our harvest with others. He was a great helper and was excited about the process, too. - Jessie
What can I do with excess food?
Let's talk about it...
FIFABQ requires at least 30 lbs of fresh food in order to pick-up. This can be a mixture of fruit/vegetables, but the quantity will remain the same.
But what if I don't have that much?
We have some suggestions:
Share with your neighbors + friends
Contact a nearby shelter/community center/food bank
Create a trading system with your neighbors
Get creative freeze/dehydrate/ can for future use/sharing
Give us a shout if you need more ideas or donation avenues!
Why am I donating my extra fruit/vegetables?
More than 70,000 hungry New Mexicans seek food assistance every week, between 30% - 40% are children and 21% are seniors over the age of 60. We believe fresh food is a human right and harvest season is a great time to share extra food + build community.
