All of us at After the Harvest are working towards our 2016 gleaning season and providing more nutritious food for our hungry neighbors.
New database and online signup
Right now, Support KC is building a database for us to track farmers, food pantries and food banks, volunteers, pounds gleaned and much, much more. As a part of that build-out, we’re going to offer a page to signup to glean directly from our website. This is a change that we think will make it much easier to come join us in rescuing produce from nearby farmers’ fields.
Groups can sign up now to reserve your date
Before that happens, however, if you have a group that can glean June-August on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays from 7:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. please call Sandy at 816-550-5631 and reserve your date.
Weekday gleaners, join our team!
One of the biggest challenges of finding volunteers for After the Harvest gleanings, is locating those who can glean on short notice on weekdays in the mornings. So on Feb. 19, a core group of volunteers will meet to help us start a glean team of folks who want to get together to glean for fun with friends, share transportation, exercise, enjoy fresh air and give to hungry families in our area.
If you’d like to be a part of this core planning group, please call Sandy…or if you’re interested in being a part of the team, call! Thank you Jay, Randy, Mary, Barb, Tom and Bill for helping us put together our new team.
