CANCELED CITRUS GLEANING FOR 2013 in Tucson and Green Valley, Sahuarita


The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona in Tucson has cancelled the gleaning of citrus fruit for 2013 due to damage from recent cold weather.   The cancellation is also in effect for the Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank.

“The recent Southern Arizona area record freeze has destroyed the citrus crops available for this year’s gleaning project,” said Bill Carnegie, President/CEO. “We are sorry for this development, but much of the fruit left on the trees is not edible.”

Homeowners who pick their own citrus and verify that it is good may drop it off at the Community Food Bank, 3003 S. Country Club Road, Tucson, AZ 85713
