Excess citrus got you down? This weekend, you can pick all that extra fruit off your productive trees and donate it to folks who need it when the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona hosts another Super Citrus Saturday event. As part of the food bank’s 2015 gleaning initiatives alone, over 88,000 pounds of fresh fruit were donated from January through March to help those in the community who struggle with food security.

You can donate all of your excess citrus to the Community of Food Bank of Southern Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 16 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. The push for fresh fruit donations will take place at two Tucson-area locations: Rillito Nursery & Garden Center (6303 N. La Cholla Blvd.) and Wells Fargo Bank (4669 E. Broadway Blvd.).

The organization will also be accepting donations throughout the season at any time, at any of the three Community Food Bank locations in Tucson, Marana and Green Valley. For more information, visit the food bank's website or call 449-8340.
