We are preparing for a brand new harvest gleaning season, and you can join us!
We have been give a small grant by the City of Forest Grove Community Enhancement Project committee to offer certification and a small stipend for successful completion of our Gleaning Program “Harvest Team Leader” training.
We are working to enlarge our teams of pickers available for area gleaning opportunities this fall. Each Team Leader will be prepared to head up a group of pickers (harvesters) to respond when DCCFW receives a request to harvest food to share between the harvesters and local pantries.
After picking and sorting for quality, fifty percent of what is harvested at each “pick” goes to the registered pantries and 50% goes to the harvesters.
Please let us know if you would like to attend one of four training sessions, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm in the St Bede Church Community Room and kitchen.
Training Session Dates:
- Monday, August 6
- Tuesday, August 14
- Monday, September 10
- Tuesday, September 11
