The Arroyo Timebank’s Neighborhood Fruit Picking Project is here to help harvest your fruit.

For anyone who would like to donate their extra backyard or garden fruit or produce to local food banks, Arroyo Timebank members will come by and harvest away. All fruits and produce will be distributed whole, made into juice, or included in salads.

“In the past, Union Station Homeless Services has received about 500 pounds of fruit each time the Neighborhood Fruit Picking Project holds a harvesting day.”

Any interested Pasadena and Altadena homeowners may call 626.502.6278 or find the application online. A project coordinator will be in touch to schedule a harvest.

People interested in participating in harvesting or being trained to lead a harvest may email

To receive an invitation to future harvestings, “like” Neighborhood Fruit Picking on Facebook.
