Gleaning to Support Your Community
Join Hunger Free Colorado staff for a gleaning day! It’s taking place as part of the Fall Harvest Festival at Miller Farms (13912 Co Rd 19, Platteville, CO 80651) on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m. You’ll be able to explore the farm and harvest vegetables, which you can donate to the food pantry of your choice. Everyone takes a tractor ride with stops along the way to pick potatoes, carrots, onions, beets, squash, peppers and more. Your admission fee includes up to five bags of produce each, plus all activities at the farm. If you only pick one bag each, your admission costs have already been covered. Costs vary by age and group size.
Can’t attend that day? You can visit Miller Farms any day between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. through mid-November. Learn more at MillerFarms.net. For those who don’t live nearby, we encourage you to contact local farms in your area to see if gleaning is possible.
If interested in gleaning with us, please RSVP to Ellie Agar by Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Hunger Free Colorado has facilitated Hunger Through My Lens, a new project led by real-life experts—those who are impacted by hunger. It aims to shed light on the reality of hunger in our communities to encourage critical dialogue and create change. Nine local participants, all women, are sharing their personal stories through photos and quotes that will be on display via traveling exhibits throughout Denver metro area.
