By 4:00pm Tuesday, September 22 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).

Boxes (sturdy, medium size – Ingles milk boxes are best), 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!

Shoes suitable for uneven ground and/or muddy conditions

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.

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.
