Fruits of our labor, Fruits of the City

100 pounds of vegetables split between the Food Shelf and Lewis House deliveries yesterday. Granted, those are some heavy cucumbers, but Green beans! Okra! Chard!

And as we get into the harvest season when everybody has overflowing gardens and trees full of fruit - Joan posted this a year ago (Sharing the Harvest), but it bears repeating:

Too many beans, tomatoes, or zucchini? Donate to a local shelter or food shelf. Apples, plums, or cherries just falling to the ground and rotting in your yard? Join the Fruits of the City - Fruit Gleaning project. The best part about the Fruit Gleaning project is that they coordinate volunteers to harvest the fruit and get the fruit to those in need. So do you have a tree that needs picking? Sign up a tree Would you like to volunteer as a gleaner? Sign yourself up
