In an effort to aid City Harvest, 16 students from the Forest Hills High School Kiwanis Key Club made 270 fruit salads on Sunday at Edible Arrangements on Metropolitan Avenue.
Kimberly Tromba, Forest Hills Kiwanis Club’s liaison to the Key Club, said that the club has more than 300 members that perform community service, each giving at least three hours of volunteer time each month.
“They were high-spirited at my shop, and will be coming back the next two Sundays to make even more,” said Tromba, owner of Edible Arrangements. “Contributing to a soup kitchen was a suggestion made by a student at their first meeting.”
Key Club members cut cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple and strawberries, and packed them up to be picked up and distributed by City Harvest to various soup kitchens in Queens.
After making the salads, there was a prize for the student who guessed how many they had made in three hours. Kania Rimu guessed the correct amount and won a box of chocolate dipped fruit.
