The 2016 Gleaning Season has begun!
While our hard working transportation team has been rescuing produce from the beginning of the year from local warehouses, the 2016 gleaning officially kicked off on June 6th at a local residence in Richland. Cherry harvest looks to be bountiful this year and we'd love for you to get involved! If you're new to Fields of Grace, you can sign up to receive our gleaning emails on the left sidebar under the heading "I want to glean." We also have a facebook page and we like it when you like our page. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/FieldsofGraceTC/. See you in the field soon!
Thanks for your support at Sowing Seeds for the Harvest!
Thanks to many of you and the generous support of our sponsors below, we were able to raise over $22,000 for gleaning in 2016!
Fields of Grace was established in April 2006 as a ministry at West Side Church in Richland, WA. The program began when 2nd Harvest Tri-Cities voiced a need for fresh produce for area food banks and area farmers wanted to donate a portion of their crops, but lacked the resources to pick the additional produce.
We provide the hands of service that pick the fruits and vegetables for residents in need. Since its inception, the ministry has trained over 1,000 volunteers who have logged over 14,000 hours of service to harvest nearly 1,700,000 pounds of produce. This produce has included apples, sweet corn, carrots, sweet cherries, apricots, plums, grapes, prunes, tomatoes, potatoes, among other fruits and vegetables. In total, Fields of Grace has provided nearly 4.7 million individual servings of healthy fruits and vegetables.
