Spring was slow in coming, but now we are in the midst of gleaning season and need volunteers!
Sunday, June 8th, 8 am – 11 am. I need 10-20 people to work at Josiah Chumba’s lovely urban farm in Raytown. Josiah is an amazing man: he grows food not only for himself, but for his neighborhood, and he also started and supports an orphanage in Kenya. We will be planting, weeding, mulching, cutting brush, etc. If you can help, please call me at 816-853-4460. Do not e-mail me.
Tuesday, June 10th, 8 am- 11 am, lettuce and strawberries. I need 6 gleaners and someone with a pick-up truck to help transport 24 boxes of lettuce. Powell Gardens is donating 24 cases of lettuce, which we will repack into our own boxes, and we are also gleaning strawberries. Call 816-853-4460 if you can help pack, glean, or deliver.
NEWSFLASH: SoSA West’s doors closed on May 9th, but we re-opened on May 19th as After The Harvest. We are a hunger relief non-profit and do the same thing as before, gleaning and finding semi-truckloads of produce to feed hungry people, but with one difference: We are now locally based and will concentrate our efforts on eastern KS and MO (rather than every state west of the Mississippi River). This allows us to be much more effective in feeding people in our community.
Please spread the word: We need volunteers. Introduce us to your church, school, scouts, or other groups you may be afilliated with, and we will come speak to them.
