Sweet Pickings Swansea / Cyfoeth y Coed Abertawe is a community group tackling food poverty and waste by harvesting unpicked fruit (mainly apples) from trees around the Swansea area. Sweet Pickings have partnered with FareShare to collect and distribute the fruit to 24 organisations addressing food poverty, including Matt’s Cafe, the East Side Food Bank and Unity in Diversity and have identified over 70 tree sites to harvest.

We spoke to Anna Williams about the Sweet Pickings Swansea initiative, the rapid growth of the project and the process behind setting up and running a crowdfunding drive. Sweet Pickings Swansea is currently fundraising for equipment, insurance, publicity materials and more to ensure the project continues to grow and make great things happen in Swansea.
