Gleaning at the farmer’s market
Jul 06, 2010 by GleanKY

Faith Feeds has had a very successful start thanks to our volunteers and, most importantly, the farmers at the Lexington Farmer’s Market.

In June we gleaned on eight days, collecting approximately 95 containers of produce.  This produce was delivered to LaRoca/The Rock (for their Monday night meal and food boxes), the Catholic Action Center (who feeds three meals/day, seven days/week), Maxwell Street Presbyterian (for their Thursday night meal), the Women’s Hope Center, and Kid’s Cafe.

On Sunday, July 4, we collected 22 boxes of produce (cabbage, greens, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and eggplant) and three large sacks of corn, which would easily fill 8-10 boxes.  Add the nine boxes picked up on Thursday and that totals nearly 40 boxes of food in the first three gleanings in July.

Wow!!!!!!!

If you are interested in participating in this unique ministry or you have a truck that you can make available from time to time, please let us know.

The harvest is great, but the workers are few. (Matthew 9:37 and Luke 10:2)
