Farm Gleaners (picking vegetables)

Gleaning is the traditional biblical practice of gathering crops that would otherwise be left in the fields to rot, or be plowed under after harvest. Gleaners are people of all ages who want to give of themselves to help feed the hungry. Thousands of pounds of food produce are salvaged each year and provided to our parntering pantries so that clients may receive fresh, local healthy produce at no cost to them.


This opportunity has multiple shifts see schedule tab to sign up.
