City Fruit fundraiser at Santoro’s Books Thursday night

May 10th, 2011 · No Comments

City Fruit, a local organization that provides volunteers to harvest fruit from neighborhood trees and give it to food banks, is having a fundraiser Thursday night at Santoro’s Books, 7405 Greenwood Ave. N.

Amy Pennington, a local cookbook author and gardening expert, will sign her newest book, “Apartment Gardening.”  City Fruit board members will talk about the organization, and a representative from the Greenwood Food Bank, which receives some of the fruit, will talk about feeding people in need.

The event from 6:30-8:30 p.m. is free, but donations will go to support this year’s fruit tree harvest.
