Grape Tomato Glean 9-26-15

We will pick green grape tomatoes on Saturday for delivery on Thursday, Oct 1 so our recipients are not inundated with too many tomatoes at one time.

Transporters will be asked to store the tomatoes in a cool, dry area until delivery to recipients on Thursday. If you are unable to store the produce for a few days, we will direct your delivery to a temporary storage location for later distribution.

Quantity estimate: approximately 1500-2000 lbs.

PRODUCE TRANSPORT VOLUNTEERS

By 5:00pm Friday, September 25
Please call, leave a message or text (preferred) Julie Powers at (281) 787-4114.
Identify yourself and indicate “yes” (you are available to transport for this glean) or “no” (you are not available for this glean).

Sun protection, drinking water and gloves.

As always, please feel free to bring out-of-town guests and/or kids to the gleans. It’s fun for the whole family!

Wear:
Shoes suitable for uneven ground and/or muddy conditions

Weather:
Assume the glean is ON unless otherwise notified via email since it may be raining at your home but not at the field.

In an effort to assure fairness, produce will be distributed (on a rotating basis) to predetermined and preapproved Haywood Gleaners recipient entities. Gleaned produce may not be sold.

Note:
If desired, gleaners may take home a small amount of produce for their personal use AFTER it has been weighed/tallied. A grocery bag should be used for this purpose and gleaners may not “cherry pick” the best produce for their personal use.
