Gleaning United – Food Harvesting Day of Caring
October 22 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Gleaning is simply the act of collecting excess fresh foods from farms, gardens, or any other sources. Volunteers work with United Way of Greater Nashua and Hillsborough County Gleaners to pick food left in the fields at a local farm. Winter squash, eggplants, peppers, and other vegetables collected are donated to local food pantries. Pantries receiving food will include Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, SHARE Outreach in Milford, and St. Joseph Hospital Employee Food Pantry, among others.
The event will take place on October 22nd from 9am to 1pm at one of our local farms. Families are welcome to participate. Contact United Way at firstname.lastname@example.org or (603)882-4011 for more information.
