Let’s just suppose you have some lush edible vegetation in your yard and are 1) not physically able or 2) too busy to pick it. Or if you pick it, you’re at a loss of what to do with it. Don’t leave to the birds!
Enter the Iskashitaa Refugee Network.
Give them a call (520-440-0100) or fill out the fruit donor application and volunteers will come to pick your fruits and provide fruits to refugee families in need in our community and/or make jams and chutneys to sell in order to fund-raise for the organization that helps refugees.
Right now Iskashitaa is able to come and pick your olives, pomegranates, kumquats and prickly pears.
This is another way that Tucson helps feed the hungry and helps people who are helping themselves.
It’s all win-win. Spread the word. Share this post.
If your church group or Boy Scout troop or fraternity wants to help regularly or just one time, the Iskashitaa Refugee Network is a good place to start. Many students need volunteer hours. Consider this charity for your international studies, sustainability sciences and service groups.
