Community Growers Glean and Give

We are pleased to announce that this fall’s pilot Glean & Give initiative was a success! On Monday, October 22nd, we had a number of community growers drop off their end-of-the-year garden surplus at the SCLT office. From herbs and cooking greens to some more exotic vegetables, including chayote–a prickly gourd–and cardoons–a vegetable that resembles the artichoke, community growers donated over 100 pounds of produce for Crossroads RI to use in the meals for the 150 men, women and children the organization serves everyday.

Many thanks to everyone who donated and participated in this wonderful initiative!
