We believe that all Vermonters should have access to—and be able to afford and enjoy—fresh, locally-grown food. Intervale Gleaning and Food Rescue develops sustainable solutions to improve food access in Vermont. Utilizing primarily volunteer labor, the program gleans and rescues fresh food from Intervale farms during the growing season and packages it into weekly free food shares for individuals, families and social service agencies. This allows community members and organizations to access fresh, local food from farms they know. The program also provides education and resources for participants to connect them with year-round, sustainable access to local food.
1:30 – 3:30 PM at Woodman Hill Orchard in Vergennes, VT
*NOTE* This opportunity takes place outside of the Intervale and volunteers will need to provide their own transportation to and from the orchard. The day before the glean we will email all volunteers directions to Woodman Hill Orchard at 175 Plank Road, Vergennes, just off Rt 7.
