The Great Glean of '12
Food Matters' group garners more edible donations than ever
Submitted by Peter Whitlock, Food Matters
ere is an update from Food Matters on how great the 2012 glean is going.
Well, 2 weeks (July 24th -
August 7th) since our official 2012 FoodMatters Chilliwack Gleaning
Season began... we've completed 23 gleans (24 if you count our Team
Leader glean on the 12th of July), gleaning 5333 lbs of locally
grown produce (excluding the 289lbs of Okanagan Apricots donated by
Minter Country Gardens) with 3125lbs going to various local
receiving partners; 6 of the the 7 listed on our website gleaning
www.foodmatterschilliwack.com/gleaning and we've added a bunch
for the influx of fruit to make sure it has gone to organizations,
families and individuals who could use it!
