Yesterday, GleanSLO had an opportunity to work with a visiting group from the Washington DC Exchange Fellowship Program from the California Agricultural Leadership Foundation. Thank you to grower Tom Ikeda and Ikeda Brothers, Dan Sutton, General Manager of POVE, and this wonderful group who gleaned 549 pounds of beautiful romaine lettuce!

Through gleaning, we become friends with farmers, learn about the variety of crops grown around our county, meet all kinds of groups and amazing people, and drive away each time with more food in the Food Bank truck than what we started with!
