Citrus Donations and Gleaning

Share Food with Your Community

Gleaning Update 

Please note that we are no longer offering gleaning services. We encourage you to drop off your picked citrus at one of our locations or at one of our Super Citrus Saturday events. For gleaning services, we encourage you to check out our long-time partner organization, Iskashitaa Refugee Network, which offers gleaning services year-round to benefit low-income UN refugee families and local food banks and soup kitchens.

To schedule a gleaning appointment with Iskashitaa, please call (520) 440-0100 or email harvesting@iskashitaa.org

Donate Citrus 

Don't let the fruit on your citrus trees go to waste!

When you donate citrus fruit, you help us provide fresh, local produce to the nearly 200,000 people in Southern Arizona who lack access to nutritious food. Donated fruit is distributed to clients of the Community Food Bank—children, families, and seniors who receive emergency food relief. You can feel good knowing that your fruit doesn't have to go to waste.
