Not Far From The Tree

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Not Far From The Tree

Not Far From The Tree (NFFTT) mobilizes volunteers to pick, collect, and share fruit from trees across Toronto. The fruit is divided into thirds and distributed to the tree owner, the volunteers, and to community organizations in need, like food banks and shelters, strengthening community connectedness and food security at the local level. This year, NFFTT is expanding and evolving their programming to new neighbourhoods in response to requests from the inner-suburbs.

Not Far From The Tree is trusteed by Tides Canada Initiative.
