Food Justice and Fruit Share’s Role

The world is in trouble. Everywhere, we are struggling to feed everyone.

We have everything we need here on Planet Earth to feed ourselves, but the way our societies are organized prevents this from happening. This is criminal. Every human being has the right to enough food, and decent food at that.

Let’s face it, if feeding the (truly) hungry was profitable, it would have been done already. That’s why we need the projects that hatch from clever ideas like Fruit Share. Even here, in Brandon Manitoba.

We aren’t in this for ourselves. True, we sometimes walk away with a bag or box packed with fresh fruit. And we may make a few friends, spend some time outside, get some exercise, and feel good about ourselves. But that’s not what Fruit Share is all about. That’s not all that draws us to it.
