The Green Urban Lunchbox is a food justice non-profit organization that seeks to empower people to connect to their food and their community by revitalizing urban spaces and building a resilient food culture. We envision a strong network of communities centered on the cultivation of food.
Our FruitShare program is a fruit gleaning initiative that rescues fruit from the backyards all throughout Salt Lake Valley. The fruit that is recused is distributed to households throughout the county to aid in hunger relief. In 2021, we harvested 40,000 pounds of fruit that would have otherwise gone to waste.
