Call for volunteers: one hour, one truckload of food for the poor

Our new gleaning program, Glean for the City, is going really well – bringing in literally tons of fresh and free produce for the hungry in our community. Much of that work is done on regional farms, but we also bring in thousands of pounds of produce from local farmers markets right here in the city. So far, we haven’t had enough capacity to get all the produce there is to be had – so we need one or two volunteers to maximize the opportunity!

There’s a local CSA on 16th and P streets NW that is donating their seconds to Bread for the City every week. We need an able-bodied volunteer with a large automobile (preferably a truck, SUV, or minivan, but this could be flexible) and about an hour of your time on Tuesday evenings at 6pm. Your work will help us feed dozens of hungry families each week.

Please contact Jeff for more details.
