Richmond Fruit Recovery Program Volunteer Application Form
Join us for another great season of fruit gleaning and reducing food waste. We collect fruit from homeowners and split the harvest three ways: with the homeowner,  the volunteers, and the Food Bank.  It's win-win-win!

Gleaning Captain
Gleaning Captains will lead fruit picks. Tasks include picking up tools and equipment prior to the pick, orientating and supervising the fruit gleaners, recording fruit pick data, and delivering the fruit to the Richmond Food Bank. Gleaning Captains must pass a criminal record check and have valid standard first aid, both of which will be covered by RFSS. They also need to have access to a vehicle that can carry fruit and ladders, and we'll reimburse mileage or we can provide Modo for those without a car. We are looking for a commitment of  1-4 days each month from June to October. They will get to take home some fresh fruit for their efforts.

Fruit Gleaner
Fruit Gleaners will help pick fruit from fruit trees throughout Richmond. They must be punctual and able to follow instructions given by their Gleaning Captain. They will also get to take home some fresh fruit for their efforts.
