Olives offer an impressive fundraising opportunity

I just called to say olive you.

Armed with hats, gloves and smiles, more than 40 volunteers came calling Sunday to show their love at Jim and Andrea Mayer’s olive orchard on County Road 27 in Woodland by picking as many olives as possible for a good cause.

In a joint fundraising effort between Davis Community Church and Woodland Presbyterian Church, the harvested olives will be pressed by the Mayers’ Frate Sole Olive Oil Company into extra virgin olive oil and sold at the Davis Farmers Market, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Foods Resource Bank Davis Growing Project, which supports communities overseas working to end hunger.
