Restoring Hope – Fresh Fruit Gleaned

Posted on February 10, 2020 at 2:19 pm in .

On Saturday morning, February 1st, 13 adult and children volunteers met at St. Luke’s church and set out in the rain to four different homes to pick citrus from their trees for 3 hours.

Our team consisted of 11 volunteers and 2 Society of St. Andrews coordinators who gleaned 1,684 pounds of citrus consisting of oranges, tangerines, lemons, and grapefruits which were taken to our Eatonville Center for Families and Central Union Rescue Mission for Men and Women organizations.

Gleaning is part of our Restoring Hope initiative, providing fresh fruit to food deserts in our area.
