What a week! Our second annual Glean-A-Mania fundraiser was a huge success, thanks to our local farmers, hard working volunteers, and awesome community partners. 

Last week, and every week, our small gleaning staff works with dozens of volunteers to harvest and distribute fresh fruits and vegetables. 

We hope that by amplifying our day to day work a bit more through email and social media during Glean-A-Mania, you learned something new about our incredible community and the people that make this project a success. 

Special thanks to our Franklin County Growers and Gardeners who donate their extras all season long!
