What Difference Do We Make?
Every organization should be able to answer the question: What difference do you make? As we've built The Gleaning Project over the last few years, we think about this question all the time...
Take 1-2 full-time staff members in each county, give them some cold storage and a few donated vehicles.
Add 122 farms, orchards and gardens.
Throw in 82 food banks, senior centers, free meals, pantries, and soup kitchens.
Multiply that times 1,100 energetic, dedicated & passionate volunteers.
And you get a community solution that provides fresh fruits and vegetables to 26,000 individuals spread across two counties who couldn't afford them otherwise.
That's the impact The Gleaning Project can have in just one year, with your financial support. Please consider donating to help us continue this valuable work, and, if you think we're worth it, pledge a penny per pound as part of Glean-A-Mania.
