We had such a fun time gleaning cucumbers with CROS Ministries! Volunteers got hands on in the fields and picked bins full of cucumbers. Volunteers pick the produce from grower's fields that is left over after the commercial harvest. The produce is then donated to the Palm Beach County Food Bank and other food-distributing partners, who distribute it to local agencies with feeding programs for individuals and families with low-incomes, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and the homeless. Gleaning makes for a fun morning outdoors, and it's all for a good cause! Volunteers put fresh produce on the plates of those in need with just one morning of volunteering.
Check out how BIG these cucumbers were! We know they are sure to make locals in need very happy.
