Our goal is to get fresh produce to people in need. We take special care in making sure that the produce we bring is fresh. Typically it is picked early in the day and will be delivered by noon. We determine where to send the food based on where the farm is, what agencies are open the day we are gleaning, and where the volunteers are coming from. We try to stay as “green” as possible in our delivery, so we choose agencies that are located somewhere along the route back home from the farm. There are many people in need and fresh produce is hard to come by, so we try very hard to distribute the produce widely, and not give the pantries/agencies more than they can hand out in its fresh state.
Please fill out your information below and please indicate the number of people you serve daily or weekly, and what kind of refrigeration you have available.
Our largest gleanings are on Saturdays (when more volunteers are available), so if you are open on a Saturday, there will be a greater chance of getting produce. Many times we leave a majority of the crop in the field due to lack of volunteers or transportation. If you are interested in helping us glean or transport food back to your agency, please sign up to receive our gleaning notices.
