Lexington Gleaning Opportunities in September
Aug 29, 2017 by Jordan Engel

Get ready, y’all! Fall crops are starting to come in, and on top of that, we’re adding more weekly grocery gleaning opportunities to the schedule! That means there are more ways than ever for you to help. So bring your family. Bring your best friend. Glean when you can, or, if you can make time your calendar, let us know if you want to take on a recurring weekly shift! Take a look at some of the ways you can be involved below:

Grocery Stores

 

Some of the grocery stores you can help glean in Lexington this month include:

 

  • Mondays at 10am: Glean Lucky’s Market and deliver to Moveable Feast and Embrace Church.
  • Mondays at 3pm: Glean Fresh Market and deliver to Lighthouse Ministries
  • Tuesdays at 10am: Glean Whole Foods and deliver to the Family Care Center.
  • Tuesdays: Glean Henderson’s (at Main and Ashland) and deliver to F&D Market.
  • Wednesdays at 2pm: Glean Fresh Market and deliver to Main St Baptist Church
  • Thursdays at 10am: Glean Lucky’s Market and deliver to Lexington Market East End.
  • Thursdays at 10am: Glean Whole Foods and deliver to the Ballard-Griffith Towers.
  • Fridays at 2pm: Glean Fresh Market and deliver to the Lex Rescue Mission.
  • Fridays: Glean Henderson’s (at Main and Ashland) and deliver to F&D Market.

This list might change as more volunteers sign up to glean. For an up-to-date listing of all our gleaning opportunities, and to register yourself to glean, check out our listing on SignUp.com.

Farmers Markets

 

Sundays at 1:45pm: Glean the Lexington Farmers Market (at Southland Dr). Bring your friends! No vehicle necessary!

You can sign up to glean at the farmers’ markets here.

Farms

The best way to stay updated about farm gleaning opportunities is join the Rapid Response Team. You’ll get a text message or email whenever a farmer asks us to come glean their farm (typically with 48 hours notice), and if you’re free at that time, let us know. We may even be able to coordinate carpooling to and from the farm. To join the Rapid Response Team, contact Jordan (information below).

Questions? Email Jordan, GleanKY’s Fayette County Coordinator, at jordan@gleanky.org or call/text 859-444-4769.
