Feeding Communities in Need & Supporting Farmers
The FruitGuys founded The FoodWorks Fund in September 2020 to bring healthy food from farms to people in need. Every month tax-deductible donations bring fruit and vegetables to hungry individuals, kids, and seniors via food banks and pantries in our network of hunger relief community partner organizations.
The FoodWorks Fund connects the dots from seed to need to feed hungry people and help farms
Our impact so far:
- $156,155 raised
153,716 servings of fresh whole food
76,859 pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables
210,180 people served
24 small, independent farms helped
FruitGuys production team packing FoodWorks boxes for donation to Project Open Hand in San Francisco, CA so they can be distributed to neighbors in need.
Our ready-to-go boxes cut down on precious staff & volunteer time at food banks that receive mostly bulk products that must then be re-packed into bags and boxes for distribution.
"These food boxes will be delivered to homebound clients who cannot leave their home to come to our grocery center," says Michael McCormick, Director of Operations at Project Open Hand, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that delivers food and meals. "We're able to deliver more than 400 boxes to homebound clients per month. Receiving these ready-to-go boxes is a huge operational relief and provides those in need with high quality produce in this unprecedented time."
About: The FoodWorks Fund evolved from the 22-year-old GoodWorks fighting hunger mission of The FruitGuys , a national produce delivery service. At the outset of the pandemic, office fruit delivery clients asked us to send donations of fruit to hospitals, schools, and food banks. We launched the Fruit for Heroes program, for which donors gifted 500,000 servings of fruit. The FoodWorks Fund was established as a nonprofit fiscally-sponsored project of Community Initiatives in September 2020. The FruitGuys makes no profit on these products and the project accounting is verified by our fiscal sponsor.
