Produce Delivered to Date

Posted on Aug 1, 2015

As of August 2, 2015, the Haywood Gleaners have already provided 9,066 pounds of fresh produce to the food insecure in our county. And we haven’t actually started the big gleans yet! Stay tuned and watch out for more glean notification emails . . . and please remember, some gleans are with a 1-3 day notice so we especially thank all those who can swing into action with a very short heads up!

Produce includes: cucumbers, yellow squash, lettuce, green beans, zucchini, blackberries, potatoes and cabbage

Potatoes/Cabbage “planned glean” – delivered to Lake Junaluska by SoSA

Yellow Squash “planned glean” – grown and gleaned by Boy Scout Troop 326

Cucumber “planned glean” – already picked and boxed – whew!

Blackberry glean – small but wonderfully sweet
