Over 5,300 pounds of produce gleaned in 2018!

Hip, hip hooray for the Ballard Farmers Market Gleaning Team!

From Katie Shinn, Project Lead to the team:

It is great to know we facilitated getting fresh and local produce to many of our neighbors in need. Thank you all for volunteering your time throughout the year. We couldn’t do it without everyone’s help. The gift of time is appreciated and it has been fun getting to know everyone. 


And from Kelli Diann Billips, Operations Manager for the Seattle Farmers Market Association:

Thank you Katie, and the gleaning team for all your hours of service to the market this year. Increasing food access in our local community starts with the gleaning team and we are beyond thankful for every volunteer that has contributed their time in 2018. We look forward to working with everyone in the new year!


All of us at Sustainable Ballard are proud to be part of this program, and we are grateful to Katie and the team for making it happen.  Thank you!
