Please Help with Your Vote to Replenish our Food Bank

 

Aloha friends,

Could you help with a vote for Rose's project – its free!  Rose Acevedo is a board member of the Sierra Club. Here's what she's up to feed our local food bank in Hawaii.

Rose

Pepsi Co. Refresh Project is offering a million dollars every month for great ideas that support local communities.

My idea, FRUITBUSTERS, to help feed the hungry in East Hawaii was approved by Pepsi on May 1st.  The goal of FRUITBUSTERS is to develop a small crew who will rescue all the ripe fruit from trees whose owners can’t do their own picking.  This abundance of fruit will then be donated to food banks and meal programs in our area.


We need your support, so please log on below to vote. Everyone who registers can vote EVERY DAY until May 31. 

Thank you for your vote,

Rose Acevedo

Picking fruit, that would otherwise just fall to the ground and go uneaten, and donating to our local Foodbank  is a wonderful idea.  Please help us by voting for this project below.

What a fantastic idea! It's also great to provide produce to the food banks because as far as I know they usually have non-perishable items only. This way the families will get a lot of vitamins and minerals they can't get from the other foods. I voted! Even if they don't get the grant, maybe this is still something that the community can do even if only on a small scale. Thanks for letting us know!

I voted! This is a very good idea. It's better to give the fruits than to let it rot.

What beautiful fruit, and how great it would be for none of it to go to waste. To use it to feed the hungry is a wonderful idea and I support it wholeheartedly.

What a great woman! I will vote.

When I go pick vegetables at a local farm it always bothers me to see how much is left on the vine and goes to waste.
