Sunnyside I.A.M. Youth Group to hold annual ‘Fruits of Sunnyside Gleaning Project’ on Aug. 25 in Flagstaff

The Sunnyside I.A.M. Youth Group will hold its annual “Fruits of Sunnyside Gleaning Project” from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25 at Killip Elementary School, 2300 E. Sixth St., Flagstaff.

Food gleaning and recovery is one creative way to help reduce hunger in our neighborhood, the group reported in a media release. Harvesting fruit from the trees in our neighborhood will assist hungry families and supplement federal food assistance programs by making better use of a food source that already exists.

The purpose of the “Fruits of Sunnyside Gleaning Project” is “To encourage the donation of food to neighborhood food banks that provide assistance to needy families living within the Sunnyside neighborhood area.”
