GLEANING

Sunday, October 14th, 10am-12pm

Join us as we head out into the fields and pick vegetables that have been left behind in the field to donate to those less fortunate than we are. After we harvest it, the Long Island Cares truck takes it away to food pantries across Long Island.  Each year we donate thousands of pounds of produce. Come out and join us for this Biblical ritual which still makes a difference to people, even today! Free.
