Once a farmer’s growing season is over, they find that they still have extra produce that needs rescuing. Feeding the Gulf Coast partners with local farmers and growers to help pick healthy, nutritious produce for those in need. Large groups of volunteers are needed to harvest and pack boxes so that the produce can quickly be distributed to our partner agencies. We invite Partner Agencies to come glean so that they can immediately take the produce with them. We partner with several area farmers to glean a variety of produce and are always looking for new opportunities!
