Update on the Ridgefield Gleaners

Hello Gleaner members, donors, supporters and community organizations,

First, a thank you to all who have donated. I don’t have emails for all and want to mention the Community Garden Members who have donated – please pass on thanks to our Community Gardeners who you may know.

We have collected 600 pounds of produce in the past two weeks which is amazing even in this peak gardening season. And there is much more to come. We noticed at the last delivery to the Family Resource Center that essentially all the produce of the last two weeks had been distributed so there is still need.

Later this week or early next we have an opportunity to pick numerous apple trees South of 199th and in a couple weeks, apple trees on Pioneer. Seems like we are getting into prime apple, pear and plum season. If you see fruit going unpicked on neighborhood trees, and would feel comfortable asking, please mention the Gleaners and the chance to contribute food to our local teams (Ridgefield Family Resource Center and Neighbor’s Helping Neighbors) who provide vital assistance to food challenged families in our community.
