Proceeds from the Brewers Plate 2013 will benefit a dynamic organization called Not Far From The Tree
Not Far From the Tree Puts Toronto fruit to good use by picking and sharing the bounty.
When a homeowner can’t keep up with the abundant harvest produced by their fruit tree, they call us to mobilize volunteers to pick the bounty. The harvest is split three ways: 1/3 is offered to the tree owner, 1/3 is shared among the volunteers, and 1/3 is delivered by bicycle to be donated to food banks, shelters, and community kitchens in the neighbourhood. We’re putting an existing source of fresh fruit to good use by sharing with those most in need. It’s a win-win-win situation!
This simple act has profound impact. We’re enhancing the environment, promoting local food, alleviating poverty, enriching city life, and feeding those most in need.
