Corn, Zucchini, and Cucumber gleaners, Market Drivers, Office Helpers, and Virtual Helpers needed.

Wellsville, KS every Monday and Saturday 7:30 – 10:30 a.m. through Saturday, August 23rd. CORN! We are on our second 4-acre field. Have saved 8,000 lbs, but could have saved 20,000 lbs if we’d had enough help. Just sayin’…. Please join us!! I need pickers and people to help transport.

Bucyus, KS – Tuesday, July 15th, 7:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. CORN! big fat ears. We need gleaners and drivers to help transport.

Rich Hill, MO – Thursday, July 17th, 7:30 – 11:00 or so. Join us at the beautiful Mennonite farms in Rich Hill for 2 acres of zucchini and cucumbers. Great for families – everything is horse-powered. Afterwards we visit their country store for all kinds of fresh produce and home-made jams, jellies, pickles, breads, cakes, cookies, pies, etc. And then we eat lunch at the local diner – super delicious home-made food! I can’t wait!

Marshall, MO – need people to go out once a week and get whatever is available. Kale, turnips, etc. We’ve been getting 400 – 980 lbs. per visit, and they will give you produce they have picked already, too.

Gladstone Market – DRIVER needed to pick up produce at the end of the market day on Saturdays (11:45 a.m.) and deliver to a local pantry.

City Market – DRIVER needed to pick up produce at the end of the market day on Sundays (2:30 p.m.) and deliver to a local pantry.

Office Helper: Want to help, but can’t work in the field? PLEASE help us in our office one day (or more, if you like!) per week.

Virtual Volunteer. Could you work from home? I need help rebuilding my pantry database. This would entail phone calls to pantries.

APPLES – Apples will be ready in the next few weeks. Please start spreading the word – I want to get ALL of them – need 100s of volunteers over the next 5 weeks just for apples in Independence, Lexington, and KCK.

Can’t do any of this? Could you forward this e-mail to people you know who might be interested in helping? churches, schools, scouts, service organizations? Thank you so very, very much!!

CALL or TEXT Karin Page at 816-853-4460 and I will send you the address and answer any questions you have. Do NOT e-mail me.

LOVE TO YOU ALL!

Karin
