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