TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

If you have a lemon tree in your yard, and don't know what to do with all the fruit, the Community Food Bank wants to hear from you.

The food bank will pick up lemons and other citrus in the Tucson Metro later this month, and the public can schedule a pickup from a home or business. Donations can also be taken to the Community Food Bank.

There will also be a two "Super Citrus Saturdays" where people can drop off fruit and designated locations across Tucson on Jan. 25 and Feb. 1.

To schedule a pickup in the Tucson area, call (520) 449-8340, and in the Green Valley and Samaritan area, contact the Branch Food Bank at (520) 625-5252.
