Baton Rouge Food Bank: City Citrus Pick Event 2016

Join Baton Rouge Green with your friends, family, and community for our 3rd annual City Citrus Pick Event on December 10th, 2016!

Each year, we pair volunteer pickers with residential citrus trees that would go unpicked if not for this event. Last year, 39 volunteers harvested and donated over 5,300 lbs of citrus in only a half day. Come out and help us best this number in 2016! This is a great event for all ages!

Fruit Pickers will meet with the Baton Rouge Green Team at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank for breakfast and coffee at 8:30a.m., where we will learn about Baton Rouge’s premier food pantry and its recovery in the wake of the recent flooding. 

After breakfast, all participants will be broken into groups according to ability to transport larger quantities of fruit to the nearest drop-off point. These drop-off points help free up the pickers while making this event flow more smoothly. They are made possible by the generosity of Baton Rouge’s very own, Bofinger's Tree Service LLC, sponsor of Pick Event 2016.

Go to the website, batonrougegreen.com to sign up as a volunteer or register your fruit tree! 

As always, #ShareTheFruit
