Note: If it is raining, we will cancel and glean on the Thursday of that week instead. If the weather is questionable, be sure to check in with us before 8am the morning you are planning to glean. We ask everyone to please register before coming, and to observe the following protocols:

  • Washing hands, wearing personal protective equipment, disinfecting all tools and supplies before, during, and after gleaning.
  • Limiting the number of times produce is handled from the farm to its final destination.
  • Limiting the number of people involved in the process.
  • Creating 6 ft distances between staff and volunteers in fields, coolers, and community partners.
  • Staying home if we feel unwell or have had contact with someone who is sick.
