Fresh lemons, tree to table!

Interesting fact: One in eight residents turn to the Food Bank and last year, over 20 million pounds of food was distributed to our local community. The Rotary Club of Concord – Diablo has picked 2,271 pounds of fruit YTD. All produce has been donated to our local community services that provide food for those in need.

A special thank you to Lee Koellermeier and Brigitte and Jim Ross who are always at the forefront of this community project.

If you have fruit that needs to be picked or would like to volunteer, please email gleaning@cdrotary.com.
