More than 30 million Americans have lost their jobs and their ability to provide food for themselves and their families 

Food banks and public school meal distribution sites are telling us of unprecedented need from individuals and families, many of whom are first-time recipients.

As a mission-driven business we want to support those in need but we need your help. That's why we launched The FoodWorks Fund, a non-profit fiscally-sponsored project of Community Initiatives. 

Your donation brings healthy farm fresh food to hungry individuals, kids, and seniors through our national network of nearly 100 community partner organizations in regions across the country.

Every month we turn your tax-deductible donations into 18-20 lb fruit and vegetable boxes and distribute them to those in need through our hunger relief partner organizations. While we try to deliver food to the food banks and school meal distribution sites closest to you, we reserve the right to send it to ones that need it most to prevent food waste and promote equity.

The FruitGuys has the capacity to produce hundreds of thousands of these fruit & vegetable boxes each month but we can't get food to this many people without your financial support. Please consider making a recurring donation in whatever amount you are able. Each box costs roughly $25-$35 to source, produce, and deliver to hunger relief partners. The FruitGuys makes no profit on these boxes and the fund is overseen by Community Initiatives, a 501c3, that verifies the non-profit requirements of this project. 

Our Story
The FoodWorks Fund evolved from the 22-year-old GoodWorks fighting hunger mission of The FruitGuys,
a national produce delivery service. At the outset of the pandemic, office fruit delivery clients asked us to send donations of fruit to hospitals and healthcare workers, schools, and food banks.

The Fund is the next step in expanding our ability to meet the country's historic
hunger crisis. We leverage The FruitGuys' farm direct and produce vendor relationships to source fresh fruit and vegetables and deliver them to food banks, charities, and school meal distribution sites.
