Peace, Trade, and Development Students Give Back To Local Food Banks

Jump to Comments


This past Saturday (August 3, 2013), 18 participants in the summer Peace, Trade and Development program and three MIIS staff traveled to Watsonville, CA to glean organic leeks for local food banks. The opportunity was organized by the local nonprofit Ag Against Hunger.

The group joined the opportunity to wear hairnets and see from where our produce comes and the effort it takes to harvest crops. The local farmer who donated the crops started the glean out with the following joke, “How do you find a farmer with 1 million dollars?” The answer: “You find a farmer who started out with 2 million.”
