ELS Volunteer Project: Gleaning

Happening Feb 29, 2020 | 8:30 AM

Emerging Leaders Society is looking for volunteers to join them in picking fresh fruits and vegetables that will go to hungry families in Palm Beach County.

United Way funded partner, CROS Ministries, utilizes volunteers to recover fresh fruits and vegetables from mango groves, farmers’ fields, cull lines, and donorsÕ 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, and bring water.

*Location will be finalized a week before the event. Volunteers will be sent an email with specific location and directions a few days prior to the event.

After the gleaning project, we invite you to join us at Due South Brewing Company for a drink, a bite to eat, and an opportunity to get to know your fellow ELS members better!
