Volunteers Needed for Ballard Gleaning Team
We need YOUR help feeding hungry neighbors!
Join our team of volunteers who collect donations from the Ballard Farmers Market. At the end of each Sunday market, we deliver donations to the nearby Ballard Food Bank, supplying hungry folks with fresh, local produce.
We’re looking for new volunteers to help feed the community while adhering to our COVID-19 best practices. We are currently participating in Farm it Forward, so you can mostly expect to help by carrying boxes and sorting produce into containers.
Currently, gleaning takes place from 1:30pm to 3pm on Sundays. Once the Farmers Market is back to normal operations, gleaning will begin about 15 minutes before the end of the market. We’re incredibly flexible with how often you volunteer. If you could help out even once a month it would make an incredible impact in the community.
This is such a simple and rewarding way to keep good produce out of the compost bin and get it to our Ballard neighbors in need. It’s fun, rewarding, and makes a tangible difference!
