We make healthy apple snacks for food programs in our city such as apple chips, apple leather and apple sauce in tubes. These are all donated and over the past 2 years we have made and donated – with the help of many wonderful volunteers, 27,000 individual snacks.
We then thought we could make healthy apple snacks for adults but with a twist. So we have created Ginger Apple Chips and Chili Apple Chips which we call our Gourmet line. The Chili Apple Chip tastes like a traditional apple chip at the beginning and then when you swallow there is a bit of heat generated. It is not uncomfortable for those who like a bit of heat in their food. But not enough for those who really like heat. It will not cause a child harm.
Sales of these products go directly to support Project Fruit Stars – which is a apple snack program.

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.
We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
We compost and recycle whenever possible.
Sales of these apple chips go directly to support Project Fruit Stars where the apple snacks are made.
