Ballard Farmers Market Gleaning
Dec 16 @ 2:45 pm – 5:00 pm

The generous farmers at the Ballard Sunday Farmers Market donate fresh produce for our hungry neighbors.  Our Market Gleaning project is looking for volunteers to help collect the produce from these generous farmers every Sunday for delivery to the Ballard Food Bank.

If you are interested in helping with the gleaning project on Sundays, 3:30pm – 5:00pm, contact Jennifer.

Teams of gleaners rotate so the commitment is no more than once per month, 3:30-5pm, on Sundays.  Early Spring is a great time to join up — it’s a little slower and less hectic, and you can learn the ropes before things pick up again as we move into warm weather.  The more volunteer teams we have, the less often each team will be put onto the schedule — many hands make light work!

Interested?  Please contact Jennifer for more information or to sign up.

Ballard Sunday Dinner

Ballard Sunday Dinner is a neighborhood effort organized by five area churches (Ballard First LutheranOur Redeemer’s LutheranSt. Paul’s United Church of ChristAmazing Grace Spiritual CenterNorthwest Christian Church) and Sustainable Ballard.

casseroleBallard Sunday Dinner provides a hot, wholesome meal every Sunday evening from 5pm to 6pm in the fellowship hall (lower level) at Ballard First Lutheran Church (2006 NW 65th St). 

Sustainable Ballard participates in this program by providing volunteers to supplement and work with the volunteers from the churches.  The third Sunday of each month, the lead church is Our Redeemer’s Lutheran.  Volunteer shifts vary in length, with the first shifts starting about 2pm and the last shifts ending about 7:30pm.
