The FruitGuys Community Fund, established in 2012 as a non-profit project of Community Initiatives, is pleased to announce funding to support sustainability projects for small to mid-size farms. This new fund grew out of the sustainable farming grants of The Farm Steward Program of The FruitGuys, a national fruit distribution company based in South San Francisco. A primary goal of the FruitGuys Community Fund is to help farms and orchards operate more sustainably and to promote advocacy that, over the long term, creates a more sustainable food system and healthier planet.
