The mission of Inland Valley Hope Partners’ Gleaning HOPE Program is to salvage fresh fruits and vegetables from our neighbors in the surrounding communities. With your help we provide a gleaning crew that will travel to residences and glean (pick) the fruits and vegetables. The harvest is taken directly to our food banks in Claremont, San Dimas, Ontario, and Pomona. This program provides the homeless and hungry with fresh produce that often is not affordable to them.
Since its inception in 2011, Gleaning HOPE has gleaned over 50,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables, and anyone THAT ENJOYS BEING OUTDOORS is welcome. We're looking for groupings of 3-5 volunteers to work together. We usually have our gleaning assignments on Fridays (any time) & Saturday mornings between 7am-11am.
If you have a truck or SUV, volunteers are also needed to help deliver the harvest to the pantries. To learn more about this program please check our blog at http://gleaninghope.wordpress.com/
Please sign up at volunteermatch.org. or for more information call the Volunteer Coordinator at 909-622-3806 X 108 or email Vcoordinator@inlandvalleyhopepartners.org *remember to include your contact number.
Please note: Although this is a year-round program, our volunteer needs are based on the gleaning needs; spring is our busiest time, late summer through winter is slower.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Have a Blessed Day
