Fruit Snaps collects un-wanted fruit from orchards that would be left to rot or end up in a landfill to help address food insecurity.
By dehydrating left over fruit we are able to create Fruit Snaps, a delicious and healthy snack that helps feed those who might not have enough.
Fruit Snaps ran its pilot project in the fall of 2018 where we began picking left over apples from orchards that would have been left to rot. We then partnered with the North Okanagan Valley Gleaners where we developed a unique process to create our healthy snacks.
Through our partnership with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club as well as several local schools we are able to deliver Fruit Snaps to kids all over the valley. Our partnership with the Gleaners also allows us to send Fruit Snaps overseas to North Korea and Guatemala.
