Hate it when fruit goes bad? Have a surplus of produce at your house? Just want to support a great cause? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we have the event for you!
On July 22nd, 2017 we are hosting the first annual “Fruit Collective” benefiting the Food Bank for Larimer County. Members of the community can bring excess fruit from their gardens and farms so that we can produce fun pop flavors, and preserve that fruit for an extra six months, as too much fruit is lost each year due to spoilage. With this event we hope to bring awareness to the farming community who can use us as an outlet for excess fruit while working to raise funds and make great food! All ice pops made from donated fruit will be donated directly to the food bank! Live music will begin at 11:30 am with Cody Jeffryes! We will also have raffles and other FUNdraising activities to raise money for the FBLC, including a silent auction featuring fantastic items from other local businesses such as Blue Harvest Apparel, Mary’s Mountain Cookies, The Cupboard, and Curiosities.
Stay tuned for updates on live music + food and drink tastings! We’ll be set up in the parking lot directly in front of Revolution Market in Old Town, and plenty of parking is available across the street at the First Bank Lot. We hope to see you there with lots of fruit!
