Reviews for Fair Share Gleaners

Role: Client Served
Rating: 5 stars  

Fair Share Gleaners is an organization where all the client's served are also volunteers - Each member family volunteers at least 8 hrs a month packaging food for distribution, assisting with distribution days (2 per week,) and/or going into the fields when farmers are done harvesting and collecting the food left behind for distribution to our members and adoptees. We are not a food bank. My family joined Fair Share late last summer and I really don't think we'd have gotten through the winter as relatively healthy as we have if not for the extra food help we've been able to get from Fair Share. I have a disability, but that hasn't stopped our family from averaging 20+ hours of volunteer time per month. We have also averaged 120lbs of food received each month. The thing I love about Fair Share the most is it's not a hand-out, they provide opportunities for members to help themselves and each other, and in the few short months I've been there, I feel like I've found a supportive Community which I can truly be a part of.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the amount of healthy nutritious food I'm able to provide to my children in spite of our low economic status.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage them to have a larger and more active presence on the internet, to encourage more awareness of the organization and more opportunities for Donors to find them.
