Scavenger Hunt at the Waterville Farmers’ Market

Thu. Oct 17 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

- Free

To celebrate Maine Gleaning Week which is October 9-16, volunteers from Healthy Waterville Action Food Recovery Team and Central Maine Gleaning Group are hosting a recruitment table October 17th  at the Waterville Farmers’ Market.  This event will include a kid-friendly scavenger hunt. The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate for the market. Come learn about gleaning and sign up to help. Gleaning, or food rescue, is defined by the Maine Gleaning Network as: “gathering of produce after or during an active harvest and donating the produce to humans rather than for compost or for animal feed. The produce gleaned could be used for direct distribution to those in need of emergency food or it could be processed at a soup kitchen.”  FMI or to volunteer: Contact Steve Knight
