Despite news reports that sadly say junk food is more affordable than healthy food, some good neighbors are feeding healthy fruits and vegetables to people living in poverty. The five women who started the Richmond Fruit Tree Project don’t stop at growing and picking the nourishing produce on their farmland. They also harvest fruits and vegetables that the equipment on nearby commercial farms misses.
The project exchanges helpful how-tos with other food programs for the poor and gives volunteers great gardening experience.
Hear all about how this charitable enterprise dealt with the typical challenges of farming life to deliver healthful fruits and veggies to the tables of people who have difficulty affording produce in the supermarket.
