Edy’s® Fruit Bars* Brand Announces Third Year of Communities Take Root Program

In many communities, there is a huge disparity between the need for fresh fruit and its availability. Since 2010, through the Edy’s Fruit Bars Communities Take Root program, 1,600 fruit trees have been planted, yielding 88,000 pounds of fresh fruit per year for dozens of communities across the nation.

Edy’s Fruit Bars is once again partnering with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to planting fruitful trees and plants to alleviate world hunger, combat global warming, and strengthen communities. 

Visit to learn about the eligible organizations and cast your vote for the most deserving ones. Seventeen communities from across the United States will win a fruit orchard. All winners will receive a fruit tree orchard, irrigation system, a groundbreaking party, and plenty of Edy’s Fruit Bars to celebrate the new orchard. Voting for Communities Take Root will begin on April 16, 2012 and last until August 31, 2012.

*Edy’s Fruit Bars are known as Dreyer’s Fruit Bars west of the Rockies and in Texas.
