Community Harvest of Davis, on Imagining Yolo Davis, July 28, 2023

Join us as John Aubert and co-founder Greg Gibs talk about the truly awesome Community Harvest of Davis, a nonprofit run by volunteers that harvests fruit from residential trees and donates it to agencies that feed people in need. Both guests are members of the group's board.

Community Harvest donates to Davis agencies, primarily the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee, with any excess going to the Yolo Food Bank and local churches. Its mission "is to provide food for people who need it, promote sustainable use of urban resources, and contribute to a stronger community." As of fall 2017, the charity had donated more than 250,000 pounds of fruit, and had a donor database of 200+ homes and more than 400 volunteers, including including members of 11 UC Davis service groups.
