We have been making apple snacks for as a healthy snack for food programs in the city. We make apple chips, fruit leather and applesauce in tubes. All of these products are donated and we have delivered just over 27,000 individual snacks in the past 2 years. We thought we could make Gourmet apple chips for adults that have a punch of flavour and so have produced Ginger Apple Chips and Chili Apple Chips.
The Ginger Apple chips have a touch of sugar and a generous amount of grated ginger root. One has to love ginger to enjoy these healthy snacks.
All sales of these snacks support of apple snack donation program called Fruit Stars.

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.
