Gleaning With Google!

Google_2

This past Thursday was an exciting day for The Harvest Club program of The Orange County Food Access Coalition! We had the pleasure of being selected as a volunteer opportunity for our local Google chapter. Google employees came out to harvest at the Rancho Las Lomas Zoological Garden to harvest hundreds of pounds of oranges to feed the hungry in OC.

Google believes in giving back! During the month of June, Google Serve occurs, which is a week where Googlers will engage in community volunteer opportunities. Last year Google employees volunteered over 50,000 hours! Click here to learn more.

Our friends from Google got to pick fruit and interact with alpacas, llamas and even tigers on the gorgeous property in Silverado Canyon.

We are so grateful for all of the hard work our local Google Irvine harvesters brought to the field! Their efforts results in 535 lbs of fresh, organic oranges going to local Orange County food assistance establishments including South County Outreach, The Orange County AIDS Services Foundation and Families Forward.

A big THANK YOU to Google for gleaning with us!
