  • Help with a Hunger Relief Harvest here in Montezuma County this Friday: Want to help us get healthy, fresh produce to those who don’t have access to it here in Montezuma County? If so, The Good Food Collective, a locally-based non-profit has partnered with TeamUp’s Food Security Action Team to host a Montezuma County Gleaning Program. The program aims to capture excess, otherwise wanted fruit and vegetables from backyard gardens, farms, and orchards, and connect it with organizations and programs that serve food insecure members of our community. If you have excess produce that you would like harvested, please consider listing it on our website at www.goodfoodcollective.org. Or, if you would like to join us harvest, we will be hosting our first Hunger Relief Harvest on Friday, 9/6/19 from 9:00-1:00. We will meet at our office inside the Sharehouse in Cortez and then carpool out to McElmo Canyon to pluck some lovely peaches and plums. Volunteer harvesters are welcome to take as much as they are interested in and the remainder will be donated to regional Food Banks and Food Pantries.If you are joining us for harvest, please bring closed-toe shoes, sun protection, water, and snacks. You will also want to bring boxes/bags if you plan on taking home some goodies. The GFC will provide picking ladders, bags, and bins.Harvest for Hunger Relief
