Rolling Harvest Food Rescue seeks volunteers for events and gleanings, will host a second free farm market in Trenton Friday
Rolling Harvest Food Rescue, a non-profit organization that partners with local farmers to feed people in need, will return to the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton this Friday, June 19, to distribute boxes of produce and dairy items to people who need food. The distribution will take place from noon to 2 p.m. at parking lot two across from the arena at 81 Hamilton Avenue.
The free farm market is open to anyone who is struggling to meet basic food needs. No registration or identification is needed. Food will be distributed while supplies last. Rolling Harvest has partnered with Zone 7, Solebury Orchards, the United Way, and the American Dairy Association for the event.
Volunteers will be outfitted with gloves, masks, and hand sanitizer and will practice social distancing. They will load food into trunks. People without vehicles can walk up to pick up a box.
Rolling Harvest needs volunteers to help out with food distribution events, gleanings at area farms, and crop harvesting at the Gravity Hill Farm in Titusville. 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.
