Fruit for Good apple chips
Fruit for Good is a social enterprise launched by the GFC in 2020. This mini social enterprise aims to put all of those delicious apples in our community to good use, ensure that people without consistent access to cold storage can enjoy healthy, local foods beyond the harvest season, and provide community infrastructure to support other food entrepreneurs in our area..... all through bags of delicious, local, heritage apple chips made available for donation to food insecure families and residents through their local food pantry and through purchase at local, independent businesses.
What a great way to support our farmers and regional food system, reduce food waste, and feed community!
How it's done...

Fruit for Good has been launched in partnership with Durango Artisan Foods, who acts as the generous host of our super shiny Harvest Saver 2000 (yes, it is as cool and spaceship-like as it sounds)!
Each week, our production team upcycles apples that otherwise would go to waste. They are either gleaned from local backyards or purchased directly from regional growers. We slowly dry our apple chips to a perfect state of crunchiness and package them for food banks, schools, hospitals and our community residents!
