So far in 2015, the Gold Country Gleaners have donated over 10,000 pounds of food to Nevada County’s service organizations.
We are a non-profit organization that collects donations of produce. We are run entirely by volunteers who work for a little bit of the produce picked, but who work mostly for the good feelings that come with feeding the hungry. We have no paid employees. We have no budget. None of our volunteers have an official title. When we drive out to a farm, we pay for our own gas. We will pick up from any farm regionally located near Nevada County. We donate produce to nearly 20 service organizations in Nevada County who feed the hungry, homeless, and impoverished.
So far this year, we have donated over 5 tons of food to feed Nevada County.
