#PNEUS - Fruit juice for one year OR a guided visite of Brussels fruit farms + the basics to start your own fruit farm
FruitCollect, 8 young and engaged people that are share the same values and have launched this project together with the support of 150 volunteers, 80 gardens and 750 people in need.Contact the project holder
Fruitcollect picks fruit from private garden to redistribute to distressed people. Help us to diminish food waste and revalue our local resources by sharing them with people in need.
The FAO (the food and agriculture organisation of the united nations) claims that 45% of the yearly production of food and vegetables is unused. The level of waste is the highest of all the food products. And what’s more, people in need have no access to healthy and sustainable food, not even through the food banks.
What a paradox!
That’s why FruitCollect mission is to battle against food waste. Our most important action is, with the help of volunteers, to pick unconsumed fruit from private gardens. The fruit is partly redistributed to social organisations that work with people in need. What rest is commercialised by social economy organisation that help to reintegrate people into our society. The revenue is used to finance our organisation and sustain our activities.
Our system works: over the past three years we picked over 10 tonnes of fruit in private orchards with the help of over 150 volunteers. A total of 750 beneficiaries connect to different organisations have enjoyed the fruits of the gatherings.
Our second activity is to gather all unsold fruit from fruit farms who showed interest in our project. We can collect over 1 tonne of unsold fruit every week. Who does better?! To do better we need more fruit farms and we especially need a cooled transport van.
