Gleaners Needed

We need gleaners to help us collect vegetables from area farmer's market and take them to the collection sites! We have 3 different weekly opportunities available! All the farmers are familiar with our organization, and know to expect us. We are as safe as we can be for all of our volunteer opportunities, with weekly testing required to cook in the kitchen, and mask wearing at all times inside.

Sunday: from 1pm - 2pm collecting from the generous farmers at Fondy Farmers' Market. This one is helpful to have some muscles and a larger vehicle as we often receive A LOT. This is also our most important glean of the week as it supplies our largest program, The Veggie Chop Shop (read more about that here), with the veggies we are to cook for the week. The veggies gleaned then get taken to out kitchen at Congregation Sinai in Fox Point where a staff member will meet you.

Tuesday: from 2pm - 3pm collecting from Thiensville Farmers' Market. The gleaned veggies then go to the JCC in Fox Point, and they will then make their way to the JCC Family Food Pantry.

Wednesday: from 4pm - 5pm collecting form Th Brown Deer Farmers' Market. The gleaned veggies then go to the JCC in Fox Point, and they will then make their way to the JCC Family Food Pantry.

All opportunities can be learned about and signed up for here. We would love to see some new faces coming in to help out!
