Help Glean Broccoli

posted Sep 2, 2010, 5:47 AM by Maine VOAD Admin   [ updated May 10, 2012, 10:47 AM ]
It's becoming a tradition for Maine VOAD partners to get together and glean broccoli at Smiths Farms in Presque Isle. Broccoli is donated to Good Shepherd Food-Bank and other VOAD partners and distributed to food pantries and soup kitchens across the state.

Please consider lending a hand, the more volunteers we have, the more broccoli is gleaned for people in need. A date will be announced soon. Learn more about hunger in Maine at

Last year was a great success. Thank you to all that made it a success. We hope that you will join us again this year. Good Shepard Food Bank will transport and distribute this product statewide through their warehouses in Auburn, Brewer and Portland. 

If you are interested in picking or need more information please contact Brent Trueworthy.
