At the beginning of August, Gentle Giant Philadelphia movers team worked alongside of Philabundance and Move for Hunger to reduce food waste. Our team assisted with the process of gleaning, which means rescuing leftover crops from fields and donating the produce to those in need.
Philabundance is a food bank providing resources to those in need within the greater Philadelphia area. We have worked with their organization in the past and were thrilled to have the opportunity to partner alongside them once again and work towards eliminating hunger in the community.
Philadelphia Movers Glean 1,700 Pounds of Corn
Our Giants visited the A.T. Buzby Farm in Pilesgrove, NJ this year to lead another glean effort and collect as much fresh corn as possible. Due to their efforts, we gleaned 1,700 pounds of fresh corn. This is a wonderful addition to what Philabundance can offer their recipients, as one pound of fresh produce donated is able to enhance one meal, which means we enhanced thousands of meals! There is nothing like fresh summer produce to make a healthy, delicious meal.
We were so happy to assist with Philabundance and Move for Hunger once again this year, and we look forward to assisting in their hunger relief efforts in the future!
