Roadrunner Food Bank Invites Growers and Volunteers to Participate in Gleaning Program

Earlier this summer, La Montañita Co-op, Feds Feed Families volunteers and Roadrunner Food Bank joined forces to hold a gleaning event, collecting 1,000 pounds of cherries and apricots. The folks at Roadrunner Food Bank want to encourage the community to participate in the gleaning process. So there is an appeal for growers to donate their excess produce, and for volunteers to help collect it. Below are two posters.  The produce, of course, goes to supplement the food bank's offerings to the community.  Last year, the folks at Roadrunner Food Bank distributed more than 10 million pounds of produce last year, but but the food bank could always use more produce.

To become a partner with Roadrunner Food Bank in gleaning or to get a gleaning volunteer program started,  please contact Candace Rodriguez at 505.349.8837 or by email at candace.rodriguez@rrfb.org.
