25 Tons and Counting!

With this years total of 3415 lbs, of fruit picked, the Rotary Club of Concord-Diablo’s Picker Squadron has passed 25 Tons for the food bank and pantries in Concord since the program started in 2009.  “There is no Scurvy in Concord or the Valley since we started this program” jokes Edi Birsan the founder of the program and one of its main ‘Pickers’ while also being Vice Mayor of the City.  Rotarians as well as their families and guests are invited to help with the mission of the Picker Squad.
