Community Harvest of Central Vermont (CHCV),
Central Vermont's own
regional gleaning program is looking for volunteers to help glean! Volunteering with CHCV will give you
the opportunity to be outside and help support your neighbors in need.
What is Gleaning? - Gleaning is the practice of walking farmers’ fields and gathering usable food after the farmer has finished the regular harvest. The collected produce is then donated to those in the community who have limited access to healthy, fresh local food.
Register with CHCV as a volunteer gleaner to help recover surplus produce from local farms.
To see pictures of volunteer gleaners at work harvesting the 29,000 pounds of produce that CHCV gleaned and donated last year, visit CHCV's web site.
CHCV needs volunteers for a range of volunteer activities including but not limited to field gleaning. Field gleaning starts in late June and goes through November, while other volunteer opportunities are available year-round. Visit the CommunityHarvestVT.org web site for more volunteer details.
If you don't have the time to volunteer but you want to help, you can support our work with a tax deductible contribution through the link on CHCV's web site.
Please consider volunteering with Community Harvest of Central Vermont and helping feed those who have limited access to the healthy fresh food that is already being grown in
"Help everyone eat local - Glean!"
