Our volunteers come from all ages and all walks of life. One thing they have in common is enthusiasm for gleaning. How many organizations can boast that they have to turn away volunteers!
Whenever we posted a harvest, we were inundated with responses from volunteers wanting to take part! Here’s what some of our volunteers had to say about gleaning:
“I liked the fresh fruit!! I liked reducing food waste and meeting new people.”
“I liked meeting the other volunteers and sharing stories while getting the job done.”
“I truly appreciated meeting new people, learning new ways to prepare fruit and of course the extra fruit.”
