Become a Volunteer Picker


Welcome volunteers!

One of Alameda Backyard Growers’ main missions is to support our Alameda Food Bank by donating fresh produce while reducing food waste.

Project Pick (Formerly Alameda Fruit Gleaning Initiative) volunteers work with Alameda residents to take extra fruit (and veggies) and donate the produce to the Alameda Food Bank. Go to our Project Pick page for more details.

If you would like to join our force of pickers, please download this form, sign it and mail it to: Alameda Backyard Growers, 839 Oak Street, Alameda, CA 94501

Also, please be sure to view the video below which instructs volunteers on the best way to pick from various fruit trees and how to stay safe:
