Next Kent Gleaning Sat 10th May ....

The Gleaning Network needs volunteers in Kent on 10 May. We work to rescue healthy, edible food that would otherwise go to waste in the fields, and we redistribute it to food poverty causes like homeless hostels. And this month we need your help!

We've found thousands of leeks going to waste on a farm near Wye in Kent. On Saturday 10th May, we'll be going on a mission to save as many as possible of these tasty delicacies for charity. All produce is going via our good friends Community Food Enterprises, FareShare and Food For All to charities dealing with food poverty, as well as to Catching Lives in Canterbury.

It's also a really fun way to volunteer - a nice day out in good company in beautiful Kentish farmland - and really satisfying to see the huge amount of good food you are rescuing.

Saturday 10th May 10am-5pm (TBC). Travel expenses paid from Kent and nearby (just ask us first).

Contact to volunteer or for more info - join the Glean Revolution!

If you can't join us this time, sign up to our gleaning list to be the first to find out about our next gleaning day near you - gleaning is spreading all over the UK!
