Portland Fruit Tree Project
Our mission is to increase equitable access to healthful food and strengthen communities by empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of city-grown produce.
Bottom Line for Portland
Donating to PFTP reduces wasted fruit in a city suffering record food insecurity and increases community resilience in our food systems through harvesting, education, and fruit tree care.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We partner primarily with organizations led by communities of color and seek to follow the lead of those groups while providing resources we are uniquely qualified to offer. PFTP leverages our long history in Portland, often with privileged homeowners, to educate on our city's racist history and injustice in the food systems - a position that allows us to advocate in ways that try to take that pressure off of the communities who have been doing that work. Everything we do is done to create a more just and equitable food system in our community, using fruit as a sweet hook.
Donations made on December 13th will be matched up to $1000 by Welcome to PDX Realty.
