gleanersWe love us some Cropmobstering. Can you help out this Thursday, Jan 16?

+++++

Help Farm to Pantry and Slow Harvest glean 2000 lbs of tangerines for hunger relief! We invite YOU to join in on the gleaning fun in Forestville, this Thursday at 9AM! In two hours, we’ll glean gorgeous tangerines ready for consumption and then deliver them to hunger relief organizations throughout Sonoma County.

OUR GOAL: Last week we soared well above 1000 lb of gleaned tangerines. We now aim to double this and reach our 2000 lb goal! But to accomplish this we need inspired volunteers to join us. That means you! And we’d be both honored and grateful if you’d join us.

Farm to Pantry and Slow Harvest will be joining forces this upcoming Thursday morning. All fruit gleaned is distributed primarily, but not exclusively to The Redwood Gospel Mission, Graton Day Labor Center, Food for Thought food bank and The Living Room. As more and more volunteers are willing to distribute, our outreach is getting even greater. Last week one half of our glean went to help Seniors who may be living on fixed and/or low incomes. Incredible!

We hope to see you there!

Contact: If you would like to volunteer to take part in gleaning tangerines, please RSVP Susan Kralovec at Farm to Pantry: westcounty@farmtopantry.org

Location Details and Instructions: Additional details will be provided upon RSVP. Depending on the volume harvested, we may need a hand distributing these tangerines around town. Wear layers, gloves, boots; bring water and some clippers if you have them, and join the easy conversation, as we pick beautiful tangerines.
