Refugees and UA Students' Successful Uberharvest
In our recent UberHarvest, Iskashitaa partnered with The Community Food Bank (CFB), the University of Arizona Returned PeaceCorps Volunteer Fellows program and the U of A Blue Chip Program, leadership education club. Neighbors from Sunset Ridge Neighborhood, near Orange Grove and Oracle arranged for us to harvest 86 trees. Four hundred-eighty pounds of tangelos, tangerines, lemons and a few grapefruit went to Isakshitaa refugees and the rest was donated to Tucson’s Food Bank. Thank you Susan Brown for helping out at this harvest with refugees from Burundi, Somalia, Congo, Bhutan and the Sudan!
