Interested in gleaning? Volunteer with us!

Summer produce is in full swing, and the Ballard Farmers Market gleaners are regularly gleaning 400-plus pounds of produce every Sunday for the Ballard Food Bank! We’re always looking for new volunteers to help feed the community while adhering to COVID-19 best practices. Volunteers can expect to help by collecting produce from the vendors, carrying boxes and sorting the collected food into containers at the Food Bank. Gleaning takes place from 1:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays, and we’re flexible with how often you volunteer – even giving your time once a month makes an impact in our community.
