Dick Jagger's Fundraiser:

From a Tree to a Table

Here is the idea, some have trees or plants on which various fruits, berries, vegetables grow. I have seen fruit left to fall and rot on the ground on occasion. This waste could be put to good use if those who are not using the food produced on their trees for sustenance, then a group of volunteers could come by with ladders, baskets and hands to pick the food and then provide it to various food banks/charities in the city. This project could be carried out on a very local level, I am in Los Angeles, but in the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valley there are plenty of fruit trees!

Step one - contact the owner of a tree (especially if it looks like the fruit is not being used) either by a flyer or knock on the door.
Step two - set up a date for gathering
Step three - gather and deliver to local charity accepting food donations
Step four - smile since you have done something positive in this world (sure it is just one small thing, but every effort counts)

A point that has kept me from moving forward on this is not knowing whether most food banks/charities will accept fresh fruits/vegetables for distribution. If anyone works at a food bank and could let me know
