GROWING PARTICIPATION, AWARENESS AND SUPPORT.

Addressing a community need requires a community effort. After the Harvest events are a great way to engage, learn about food waste, sign up volunteers, build awareness, take part in training or enjoy an evening out. Whether you have a favorite event or just want to do more to enjoy the friendship of others who share your passion for providing healthy food for hungry people, come join us.

To sign up for specific gleanings and market pick-ups from May through November, go to our Volunteer Calendar on the Gleaning Sign-up page.
