Cleaning out your garden? Afraid the end of summer vegetables will get bitten by the first frost? Want to help out your neighbors in need?
The Healthy Roots Collaborative’s Gleaning Program is hosting two Home Garden Drop Off Days this week! Stop by Islands in the Sun and the Champlain Islands Food Shelf to drop off your extra produce, which will be shared with families right here in our community.
Tuesday, October 4th from 3-6 pm they will be receiving produce at the Champlain Islands Food Shelf, located at the Methodist Church at 12 Hyde Road in Grand Isle.
Thursday, October 6th from 3-6 pm they will be receiving produce at the Islands of the Sun Senior Center, located at 54 S. Main Street in Alburgh.
At each site they will weigh all produce that donated and then distribute all those fruits and vegetables right from those sites. This is a great way to give back to your community and start the garden clean-up process. Please help spread the word about this event- t he more the merrier!
