Glimpses Of Fruta Gift
Posted by Anne Veh on Aug 7, 2017
From the initial inspiration of gifting surplus fruit from local trees to neighbors 5-6 years ago, to gradually forming friendships with farmers at the local market who now regularly offer up their extra produce, the weekly stand outside Pancho's home is now looking like a mini-farmers' market itself!
And below is Liu, one of the rockstars behind the magic, who hasn't missed a single Fruta Gift in the last year, and has been helping anchor it for almost 5 years!
Feeling full of gratitude and inspiration to witness to such a grassroots, labor-of-love offering in one of Oakland's most gang and violence-ridden neighborhoods. :)
