Introducing The Roots Initiative
Join Our Mission
We harness the power of fruit trees to create healthy, resilient, sustainable and connected communities across Toronto. By picking and sharing overlooked fruit, we bring people closer together and create a stronger connection with our neighbors, environment, and food system.
Since 2008, we have harvested over 250,000 pounds of fruit from yards across the city, donating a third to our social agency partners. With a dedicated community of over 1000 people and partnerships with 60+ agencies, we have fed thousands and made a lasting difference in Toronto’s food system.
Support Our Efforts
Your contribution can make a tangible difference in reducing food waste, increasing food access, and fostering community connections. Donate now and be a part of the positive change we’re bringing to our city.
