AFAC Gleaning at Local Farmers’ Markets in 2023
April 12, 2023
We are excited to pick up donations from Farmers’ Markets once again! During the peak farmers’ market season, AFAC sends volunteers to glean or collect produce donations from vendors at the end of the market hours. This is a great partnership that brings farm fresh produce directly to families in need. This also helps the farmers reduce food waste for unsold produce.
For the 2023 growing season, AFAC is partnering with the FreshFarm and Field to Table organizations to glean produce at the following markets:
- Cherrydale: Saturdays starting April 15
- Lubber Run: Saturdays starting April 15
- Courthouse: Saturdays starting May 6
- Westover: Sundays starting May 7
By the end of the season, tens of thousands of pounds of farm fresh food is collected and given out to families in need!
