Pick for Your Neighbor


Pick for your Neighbor benefits the Vermont Foodbank by increasing the amount of fresh, healthy produce available for distribution to our network partner food shelves and meal sites throughout Vermont while also helping increase business for local orchards.

During apple harvest season, individuals, civic groups and companies are encouraged to visit a participating orchard to pick and purchase extra apples for donation to the Vermont Foodbank.

Consider spending a day at one of Vermont’s orchards this coming season and Pick for Your Neighbor! If you’re a corporate group looking to participate, learn more here. If you’re a civic group looking to participate, learn more here.

Pick for Your Neighbor is sponsored by Woodchuck Hard Cider and Front Porch Forum. Your contributions also make this program possible. Please consider giving to the Vermont Foodbank today.
