First the first time ever, the bounty of our Annual Citrus Glean STAYED AT ST. LUKE’S to provide food for our arts community food distribution.
Our team has donated their time and the fruits of their labor to the Society of St Andrew (SoSA). But in this unprecedented year, SoSA decided that WE were the organization with the greatest need. Our volunteers gleaned two weekends due to inclement weather.
In this pandemic, this ministry has become a critical source of much needed fresh produce for people who are facing food insecurity.
This year’s harvest blessed the 250 families who have come every Tuesday since last spring to pick up food for their families. We are grateful to all 33 who volunteered to glean AND all who donated potatoes to our food distribution. We received 5 more bags of potatoes than we needed!
