Did we do the gleaning?
We did. Before we went, I was kind of worried that I had signed us up for the wrong job. I suspected it involved heavy lifting (which it does, 60 pounds of squash anyone?). But Dennis and I were able to work as a team. I approached the farmer and did the ask and wrote down the results and Dennis took the contribution and added it to our cart. It was just Dennis and me and a staff person. Not too organized but we got it done. We got a lot (time of the year) which we dragged on the two carts and up to the food bank where we weighed it and got it into the cooler. I sure hope they were able to distribute it. And there was a 60 pound box of squash (Thanks Alvarez farms).
We signed up next week. Supposedly there's going to be a brand new staff member supervising this time. We're the experienced group after doing it exactly once!
