Opal® is known as the apple with a purpose. We seek to build holistic, sustainable communities by empowering members to put their dreams into action and then serve those most in need within their community. To that end, we sponsor the Opal® Apple Youth Make a Difference initiative.
The Opal® Apple Youth Make a Difference initiative awards Opal apples in 27-pound fundraising cases delivered to partner organizations serving their communities in the U.S. These organizations must include youth aged 6-25 taking leadership roles. Fundraising apple boxes will be delivered to each group's preferred drop site free of charge. We are looking for organizations seeking grant dollars in the range of $5,000 - $10,000 (approximately 250-500 cases).
The organizations chosen must address one or more of the following issues:
- Food security
- Food politics and education
FirstFruits Marketing, Opal Apple's exclusive distributor, shipped a grand total of 1,190 cases of Opal apples in 2018 to participating organizations.
