The Chatham-Kent Food Policy Council has been working on creating a Gleaning Project for Chatham-Kent. Last year was our first pilot year. This year we hope to expand the program and are looking to partner with additional local producers.
Please find attached an information letter and if you are interested in participating, an intake form to complete. Feel free to share this information with anyone you feel would be interested.
A couple of important points:
- All the volunteers that will be coming out to your location will be trained on health and safety by the health unit. We have a complete training workshop that they are required to attend and would be happy to share this information with you if you have any questions. All volunteers are covered under the municipal volunteer policy.
- Your involvement would be very simple, please fill out the attached form to confirm you participation and when you crops are ready, just let us know and we will set up the time at your convenience that we will have the volunteers come to glean your crop.
For more information, please contact Lyndsay Davidson directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 519-352-7270 ext. 2478.
