Food and Food: Edmonton10 Aug 2009 07:30 pm

While my parents have considerably trimmed back their raspberries bushes and apple trees and we do not have as much to pick, I know not everyone is in the same boat. With no time or simply too much fruit to get to, some home owners have buckets of fruit left to waste on their plants, once the animals have had their fill.

However, a new group of people in Edmonton have gathered to rescue your fruit: Operation Fruit Rescue! The team of volunteers representing OFRE comes to pick your fruit, and the bounty is divided into thirds. 1/3 to the pickers, 1/3 to the home owner and 1/3 to the Food Bank or other food centre. How great is that?

    Okay I have an apple tree that is dropping apples faster than I can use them. My sister in law told me of operation fruit rescue. I love the idea. How do I sign up for OFRE to come pick my tree?

    Tricia, you should visit their site. has all the information on contacting them and asking them to come pick. They are very overwhelmed right now, but be patient, and I hope they make a visit!
