Volunteers deliver the first load of fresh-picked fruit to new partner Heaven's Windows in Spring Valley in early 2017. Heaven's Windows, a San Diego Food Bank satellite, distributes to E. County seniors, students, and low-income residents.
Senior Gleaners works cooperatively with numerous similar organizations throughout the county. All the groups need all types of furits and vegetables, volunteers, assistance transporting collected food and cash donations to support their work. The site provides descriptions of each group, contact information and the geographic area each serves.
