Thank you for
another great season of gleaning at the market. We appreciate so much
your willingness to let our volunteers come week to ask the farmers if they had
anything to donate. The farmers were incredibly generous and also great
to spend time with. In fact, they have embraced us into their market
family, which means a lot.
Rosemary Breithaupt has continued to be one of the most dedicated volunteers,
gleaning an incredible 27 times over the season; we really couldn't have done
it without her.
Here are some statistics from this year:
I remain really excited about how things went overall, and
our volunteers have already started thinking ahead to April.
Thanks again so much!
