Finding Fallen Fruit with Neighborhood Fruit
It is estimated that nearly 50 percent of the food produced in North America is ultimately wasted. While this waste comes in many different forms, awareness is mounting over fruits and vegetables that are simply never harvested, usually in urban locations. Enter Neighborhood Fruit, the website designed to find and share local fruit that is ripe for the public picking. Currently there are over 10,000 trees registered on the site that are available to be harvested throughout America. As a bonus, the site has also launched Find Fruit, a mobile app providing the same service in pocket format.
