Sunday Market Gleaners Collect 1,100 Pounds of Food in 1 Day!

Our gleaning volunteers added over 1,100 pounds of fresh, local food to the Ballard Food Bank fridge this weekend! A big thank you to Alvarez Farms for donating over 200 pounds of summer squash and the Cottage Bakery for donating 100 pounds of bread! Summer produce is in full swing, and we could definitely use some more volunteers over the next few months.

This coming Sunday August 6th we could use 2-3 volunteers to help out. The following Sunday August 13th needs 3-4 volunteers. Sign up to Volunteer! Gleaning is a great way to make new friends (volunteers and farmers alike!), support our local food economy, and provide high quality produce to those in need.
