Urban Foraging is a growing movement that promotes harvesting the bounty of city trees, which would have otherwise fallen and left to rot, and sharing it with the needy. One of the most active campaigners of urban foraging is Anna Chan of California, who is lovingly called the Lemon Lady because of her work in harvesting lemons from trees in her community and donating them to the local food pantries. She delivered more than 40 tons of fruit worth $100,000 to her local food banks in her first year of pursuing urban foraging.
