Grapefruit, oranges and lemons, oh my!

grapefruitIt’s citrus season and this year the fruit we have received has been amazing! As an Agency, you may accept citrus for distribution at your sites directly from the community that grows it.

As the season winds down, citrus will no longer come through United Food Bank’s warehouse and small donations are fresher when provided directly to the Agency for distribution. There is no longer a county quarantine on citrus–which will now allow you to accept from any location inside Arizona.

Here is our information sheet that will help with any questions you may have in regards to donated citrus. You may refuse citrus that you feel does not meet these guidelines. Thank you for helping provide fresh grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, and lemons to your community!
