What do you do when you walk on by a fruit tree? Any ONE of us can do this...

How can we alleviate hunger if we don't even try? (And, end urban fruit waste at the very same time!) Any ONE of us. Any Town, USA - or any part of the world - for that matter, can make an impact in the lives of those less fortunate. From the doorsteps of fruit tree the doorsteps of need.

"Knock. Knock. Hello. My name is Anna and I see that you have a fruit tree. By any chance do you use all of the fruit for your own family, or would you be interested in sharing a bit with a local food pantry?"

That's all I do. (Well, I've knocked on thousands of fruit tree doors.) Yet, it truly is that simple. What are you waiting for? Fruit is ripe right now! Every city has an edible urban harvest. Is it apples, peaches, peanuts, walnuts, chestnuts, pecans, cherries, oranges, lemons, tangerines, grapefruit, avocados, apricots, loquats, pineapple, passion fruit? It is a passion! Happy Thoughts. Happy Harvesting.

I am also available for public speaking at social and civic groups, offices, churches, faith groups, schools, preschools, senior clubs, service organizations, etc. to inspire other individuals who wish to help alleviate hunger and inspire others. Thank you!

    This is so true. Anna, you will never know how many people you inspire in this world. You are affecting change in a big way.

  2. Your right again. How easy it is for any of us to ask someone to share in behalf of the impoverished. I will attempt this in my district.
