Help Us Help Others In Need

24-Hour Glean-a-thon

Share This Post

Over 100 Rotarians from Windsor Essex Clubs, Areas 9 and 10 participated in the 2nd Annual 24 hour Glean-a-thon at the Southwestern Ontario Gleaners. They chopped and peeled thousands of pounds of potatoes and peppers to make dehydrated soup mix to help combat food insecurity.

Dedicated to helping feed the hungry, Rotarians are proud of their efforts that will see the product used for distribution to community partners right here in our local area, across the country, as well as internationally. Relief Agencies in Zambia, Nicaragua, Haiti, Ukraine, and other places around the world distribute this soup mix to people in need.

Rotarians, family and friends all worked together at the SWO Gleaners in Leamington, starting on Friday, August 21 at 4pm and finishing up on Saturday, August 22 at 4pm.

Southwestern Ontario Gleaners is a dedicated charitable organization that provides free dehydrated vegetable mix and fruit snacks for distribution to reputable relief agencies around the world. The unmarketable fruits and vegetables are donated by local growers, and volunteers carefully prepare the produce to be mechanically cleaned, diced, dried, and packaged for distribution.
