Community Fruit Harvesting is a volunteer organisation led by its founder, Di Celliers, is an initiative that sees Di and her volunteers pick unwanted fruit from backyards and orchards around New Zealand and sharing it with those in need.
Nobody should go hungry while fruit falls to the ground and rots and Community Fruit Harvesting has set about making a big difference, one fruit tree at a time.
Initially borne on Auckland′s North Shore, Community Fruit Harvesting now has a presence in 20 regions of New Zealand from Whangarei to Dunedin and has extended its services from the redistribution of unwanted fruit to include vegetables and preserves that supplement food parcels distributed through local ministries, the Salvation Army and various food banks.
