Fruit for Thought is one of RPIRG’s best-known working groups. Their mission is to create awareness of environmentally sustainable behaviours and reduce food waste while contributing to the community.
This past season, Fruit for Thought harvested over 30 trees in Regina, and somewhere between 2250-3000 lbs of fruit. They donated apples and processed goods to Transition House, Souls Harbour, Chili for Children, Salvation Army, YWCA, Five Directions and the Food Bank.
Fruit for Thought was recognized by the Regional Centre of Expertise on Sustainable Development on June 7, 2012. They received acknowledgement for having a project that contributes to creating and raising awareness of sustainable food practices in Saskatchewan.
