Skagit Valley Gleaners - March 10, 2021

Host Jerry Shackette talks with Morgan Curry, Executive Director at Skagit Gleaners. How has the Covid pandemic impacted food access and hunger in Skagit County? How does the Skagit Gleaners food program work? Can just anybody grocery shop and take advantage of these resources?

We also talk about who is using Gleaners and where does the organization get its food? The classic definition of gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers' fields after they have been commercially harvested or on fields where it is not economically profitable to harvest.

Join Jerry as he discovers Skagit Gleaners is so much more than what's left in the farmer's field.
