Darleene Barrientos Clusters of green grapes made their way to patients Wednesday at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, but they were not part of the hospital's standard dessert fare. Several crates of the plump grapes were blessed Wednesday by priests from St. Mary's Apostolic Church during the seventh annual Blessing of the Grapes ceremony, now a long-standing tradition at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. The ceremony is a 1,700-year-old tradition and started when ancient Armenians harvested grapes, brought them to church to be blessed and then distributed them among the poor and the needy.

Cerritos’ “Nutrition Day” gave students a chance to visit booths set up by food and wellness groups, while also exposing children to an array of fruits and vegetables that they may not have been familiar with, said Agnes Lally, director of food services for the Glendale Unified School District.

I love the way my mom cuts fruit, the way she wills the pear in her hand to undress itself for her, without a single blemish in sight. I often think about her seamless execution when I'm cutting fruit myself, my apples full of potholes, and my cucumbers unevenly sliced, still showing slivers of green skin. Her bowl of oranges, bananas and strawberries - presented after every meal with a cup of tea so delicious it will transport you to the mountains and hills between Armenia and Iran - is not just the sign of a brilliant host.

A pink shirt and matching tie didn’t deter Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) from sinking his hands into a soon-to-be planted flower bed Friday at College View School, as Glendale Unified school board member Mary Boger distributed 300 worms nearby. “My father, when I was a kid, used to teach me the importance of getting down and working with the dirt, and I just think it is an important life lesson that kids should learn,” Gatto said. “It gives a really rewarding feeling when you plant something and a couple of months later you get a chance to see it grow, and then you get a chance to eat it.” Gatto was one of dozens of civic leaders, education officials and schoolchildren laboring to create a new garden at the special-education school, made possible in part by a grant the freshman state representative secured through Western Growers Foundation, the charitable arm of the agriculture trade association Western Growers.

The David family and their friend, Bridget Keenan, were sitting on the grass surrounded by hundreds of oranges and grapefruits on a brisk Thursday morning. They had just picked the fruit from a neighbor’s trees and were counting and sorting them, choosing the best to be donated to the Burbank Temporary Aid Center. It’s Helena David’s goal this year to pick 100,000 citrus fruits and donate them to the needy. As she drives around town, the Burbank resident said she sees trees bursting with ripe fruit that no one has time or energy to harvest.

Glendale resident Minas Soukasians would have just given away the pomegranates that someone cut through his backyard fence to steal, but they never asked. Soukasians on Monday noticed the tall tree, which once sparkled with ruby-colored fruit, was almost barren. "I can't believe it," he said. Upon further inspection of the tree, Soukasians said he noticed a gaping hole in the fence. Someone had cut the chain-link to steal the more than 20 pomegranates. "I have been waiting the whole year for this fruit," he said.

The Minneapolis-based discount retailer opened a produce section at its Burbank store last month, hoping to give shoppers an option to catch up on more of their grocery shopping while browsing the store for its traditional offering of household goods, said Hadley Barrows, a spokeswoman for Target.

This all-volunteer grass-roots organization gleans fruit off trees on properties and donates 100% of the bounty to food pantries in an effort to fight urban hunger, said Boswell, one of the fruit picking coordinators.
