SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The FruitGuys, the nation's leader in providing farm-fresh fruit and thoughtful snacks to the American workplace, released today its 20-year Impact Report summarizing its efforts to feed the hungry, support small farms and environmental stewardship, and create healthier workplaces.

Family owned and operated, The FruitGuys pioneered the office fruit concept in 1998. Today, the company is the #1 fresh fruit delivery service in the U.S., providing thousands of companies and millions of people with farm fresh fruit and healthy snacks each week. Since its founding the company has chosen to donate imperfect fruit rather than sell it on a secondary market. 

"We are deeply grateful to our customers who believe in our mission and have allowed us to support small farms and give back to our communities," said Chris Mittelstaedt, The FruitGuys founder and chief executive officer. "Our 20-year Impact Report is the result of their support of our GoodWorks Program and The FruitGuys Community Fund."

The FruitGuys GoodWorks Program makes weekly fruit donations to 16 partner organizations across the U.S. that feed the hungry. The non-profit The FruitGuys Community Fund supports small farms with grants for sustainable agriculture projects such as solar power, beehives, pollinator plantings, and hoop houses.
