Urban Youth Harvest
After two smaller scale ventures, PUEBLO launched an expanded version of the Urban Youth Harvest program in 2009. Working with Cycles of Change, Oakland's youth biked their way to harvest excess produce from Oakland's back yards, providing this delicious and nutritious bounty to Oakland's low income seniors who lack access to healthy produce.
Harvest Time Approaches
As harvest time approaches, PUEBLO's Urban Youth Harvest is about to get underway. If you have more fruit than you can handle, give us a call at 510 535 2525 and our youth will come and glean what you can't use We donate the produce we harvest to low-income seniors and others who can't afford or don't have access to fresh produce.
A Call to All Potential Fruit and Vegetable DONORS
As the Spring leads into Summer, UYH is looking forward to its fifth summer of bountiful harvesting! We are still looking for fruit and vegetable donors as we work to expand our program so that we can continue to provide seniors in Oakland with fresh produce. If you would like to support Urban Youth Harvest in our efforts and you have a surplus of fresh produce in your yard, please contact us.
PUEBLO TABLES AT KAISER HEALTH FAIR
Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefits Program sponsored a one day Employee Health Fair from 8 AM to 4 PM on Wednesday, September 15th. PUEBLO was invited to participate, along with other organizations that provide healthful programs that promote well-being and fitness.
If you have excess fruits, vegetables, or herbs and would like to donate what you can't use to those in our community who lack access to fresh produce, you can be a donor to Urban Youth Harvest. Instead of letting all of that produce go to waste, let us collect it and deliver it to Oakland’s senior citizens who have need of fresh produce to maintain good health!
