we're gleaning, we're gleaners, we glean ...

almost every saturday you could find us here ...

i don't drive one of these ... but i'm thinking about investing in one ...

we load up with as much as our little van can carry with all the bread that would otherwise be thrown out ... in the dumpster ... and it's perfectly good bread - it's just that the expiration date will happen over the weekend and then the stores can't sell it ... and so they bring it back to the bakery and throw it away! it's terrible ... but great for us since we are part of this gleaning group! as i was saying ... we load up are van and take it to church on sunday and 'face the gallopping hordes' (there aren't any bad guys with swords - thank heaven) to distribute our loot!

this is the wonderful lady that is/was in charge ...

Dixie is moving to Boston now but we're still gleaning ... just with a new fearless leader!

so ... if you want some free bread - we'll be at church next sunday!

I totaly checked into doing this once we moved here, but alas, our dang town is too small for such organized groups. So they all just THROW it away!!! It makes my stomach turn! No one even recycles around these parts... so sad.
