Unmarketable fruits and vegetables that would ordinarily be disposed of are donated by local growers. Gleaner volunteers carefully prepare the produce to be mechanically cleaned, diced, dried, and packaged as vegetable mix and fruit snacks.
There are many ways to help! Growers can donate produce and receive a tax credit. Organizations can request presentations. Groups, schools, and individuals can volunteer at our facility. Everyone can pray for the gleaners and spread the word.
