Summertime — volunteer to help feed hungry neighbors

We are looking for more volunteers to join our gleaning crew!  The commitment is two to three hours on a Sunday. Volunteers can sign up to participate on a regular monthly schedule or can join us when their schedule allows. So far this year, our group has collected, sorted and delivered over 2,500 pounds of fresh produce from the Ballard Farmer’s Market vendors to the Ballard Food Bank…amazing!

Contact Katie if you would like to learn how to get involved.

This is a great project for people who are interested in keeping good produce out of the compost bin and getting it to our Ballard neighbors in need. It involves a 2-1/4 hour commitment about once per month. We love to have high school students participate for their community service hours. We are looking for a few people with a vehicle such as station wagon or pick up for transporting the boxes.

Teams of gleaners rotate so the commitment is no more than once per month, 2:45-5pm, on Sundays.  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 Katie for more information or to sign up.
