While walking through our neighborhood, discussing God's plan and purpose for our lives, my daughter Grace and I noticed noticed that many of our neighbors have ornamental fruit trees in their yards. The fruit was either sagging to the ground or falling off as no one was harvesting it.
That observation moved us to do something about it, and from that "Forgotten Fruit" was born. Forgotten Fruit, Inc. is a fruit recovery effort that benefits those in need. We collect the unused fruit, with the permission of our neighbors and friends, and donate it to local rescue missions and others in need throughout our city. To date we have already collected several thousand pounds and distributed to 14 area missions and growing.
The faces of the recipients and their words of gratitude only confirm that this is something worth continuing. If you'd like to be a part, please visit our Contact Us link and let us know!
