"Fruit Philanthropist"

TIME magazine's Lexicon section this week featured a term I rather like:

fruit philanthropist n.
Someone who voluntarily harvests surplus fruit and then donates it to food banks and centers for the elderly

USAGE: "Thus was born North Berkeley Harvest, part of a small but expanding movement of backyard urban gleaners--they might be called fruit philanthropists." --New York Times, Sept. 14, 2008
