Please join us for our San Carlos Backyard Fruit Donation Challenge going on this week until Sunday, January 28th! In collaboration with San Carlos Week of the Family 2024, EGC organizes a backyard produce competition between the North and South regions of San Carlos, with a focus on citrus. The region’s borders align with those of Carlmont High/Tierra Linda Middle School and Sequoia High/Central Middle School. The competition aims to foster community development, volunteerism, and spread awareness of food security, public health, and sustainable agriculture—three of EGC’s core values.

Whether or not you have a student enrolled in the schools, the entire San Carlos community is invited to donate. Donors have two options: either pick their own fruit and deliver it on Saturday, January 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the parking lot of Tierra Linda Middle School (750 Dartmouth Ave.); OR, sign up for volunteers to harvest your fruit on January 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the San Carlos Farmer’s Market (EGC booth on Laurel St. near Peet’s).

Donated produce will benefit the Samaritan House of San Mateo and Second Harvest of Silicon Valley directly. Additionally, Every Green Corner will provide a fresh fruit tree to every participating SCSD public school in the area that wins!

Sign up here to donate produce.

Time is running out…what region do you think can donate the most backyard produce by this Sunday?
