Gleaning Volunteer Project
Registration for this volunteer project is now closed. Stay tuned for future volunteer projects!
Join United Way of Palm Beach County for a family friendly volunteer project to celebrate National Volunteer Week and Global Youth Service Day!
CROS Ministries utilizes volunteers to recover fresh fruits and vegetables from mango groves, farmers’ fields, cull lines, and donors’ backyards. This food recovery strategy allows the harvested produce to be distributed free of charge through the Palm Beach County Food Bank to their food partners. Don’t miss this opportunity to make a difference for individuals and families in our community!
Please dress comfortably, wear closed-toe shoes, a hat/sunglasses, sunscreen
Children 10 and under must be supervised by parents or other responsible adults. Children under 6 must be within arm’s reach of a responsible adult at all time
