PUNGO — Volunteers from a number of Hampton Roads churches cut collards to help the needy this past month in a harvest called gleaning that is being encouraged in Virginia to fight hunger.
The Apostle Sharon Wallace of Tidewater Gleaning, affiliated with the Society of St. Andrew, organized the gleaning event at Scott Morris Farm, which grows a section of collards that is meant to be harvested for the needy.
Wallace worked while other volunteers pull a load of collards. A number of churches will distribute the food.
“We have a lot of hurting families in our communities,” she said.
