Ag Against Hunger Gleanings in Monterey County
- When: Friday, May 28, 2010, time TBA
- Where: Monterey County,
- Cost: Not available
- Age limit: Not available
After crops are harvested, fruits and vegetables are left in the field to be plowed for the next planting. But less so than before Ag Against Hunger began inviting volunteers to their county-wide gleanings to collect food for the poor. Farmers contact AAH who, within sometimes days, assembles pickers to meet at The Cooler at 495 Brunken, Salinas (where the produce is refrigerated before being dispersed), and caravan to the particular field. Bring a bag to take produce home as an immediate reward. The May 22 barbecue with AAH folks and farmers kicks off the Monterey County season; the gleanings take place Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 13, when another barbecue for gleaners fills bellies and warms hearts. Call to RSVP. [WR]
