My name is Monica Murphy. Our agency, the Texas Asso. for Community Action
administers several anti-hunger programs, including Share Our Surplus.
For this program, we solicit donations or surplus produce from TX
farmers for distribution to area food assistance agencies. Right now,
the program thrives mainly in the Rio Grande Valley; however, we'd like
to expand by creating and implementing gleaning projects in other parts
of the state.
Would like to possibly organize groups of volunteers to
do gleaning projects- highschool or university students, or possibly
Not sure exactly where to begin and we're looking for some concrete info
on the logistics of actually starting such a program with teenagers.
