This summer, Sterling College students assisted our gleaning program by harvesting fresh, excess produce from Pete’s Greens in Craftsbury, VT. They gathered 450 lbs of chard for food shelves and meal sites in the area, as well as interviewed our Gleaning & Community Outreach Coordinator for the Northeast Kingdom, Andrea Solazzo.

Beana Bern, Digital Content Developer & Storyteller for Sterling College, wrote a blog post about their experience, documented the day with photos and even produced a video that we’re sharing here:
