On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!

posted on: May 24, 2016

Join us for summer 2016’s Read and Feed Program for Kids.

To many of us, summer vacation brings excitement, but others are filled with apprehension and uncertainty. Some parents do not know whether they will be able to provide their children with nutritious meals without the free school breakfast and lunch program.

As a community, we strive to provide a solution to this problem with the Summer Read and Feed Program! Local churches, organizations, school districts, and numerous dedicated volunteers are working towards feeding these hungry bellies as well as their minds with reading enrichment activities. Hot meals will be prepared and delivered from Project SHARE to this year’s site locations where children will also partake in crafts, books and relationship building activities.

Join us this gleaning season!

posted on: May 10, 2016

What is gleaning? Gleaning is a biblical concept described several places in the Bible, including in the book of Ruth. It is when the growers purposely leave extras from the field behind for the poor to pick to feed their families. The food is free for those laborers and is considered to come from the generosity of the Lord.

More than 36 local farms and farm markets allow us to glean in their fields or donate fresh produce to us. Project SHARE volunteers and recipients work together to pick fruits and vegetables. The work is hard, but the rewards are many; all the food is FREE for our labor. The donated produce is then available at our Farm Stand.

Volunteer dates are available from June 20 to Oct. 29. Sign up and reserve a space.
