ProduceGood's Orchard Upcycler Program (Recap)
October 6, 2020
San Diego, CA
Scope of Work
Harvest produce and deliver to feeding partners
This year, Urban Corps provided essential Covid-19 services by harvesting over 216,000 servings of produce for food insecure San Diegans.
This was accomplished in partnership with ProduceGood and as a participant in their Orchard Upcycler Program – a program, supported by CalRecycle, whose mission is to increase immediate access to fresh produce for those in need.
Working alongside ProduceGood, Urban Corps harvested produce from orchards across San Diego and, additionally, provided delivery services to feeding partners. Corpsmembers took pride in being part of the solution to food insecurity and were excited to serve.
Said Felix Velasco, supervisor at Urban Corps, “We love that we have been able to keep working, especially during these hard times, and to also provide food for the community.”
