On October 23, Cook AZ took part in a gleaning on Giamarese
Farm in East Brunswick, NJ. Leading up to the event, we had a conversation
about food as a right and each individual’s responsibility to help those in
need. Once we got the farm, we spent several hours going through the field and
harvesting sweet corn to donate through the NJ Agricultural Society’s Farmers
Against Hunger. We harvested over 3000 lbs of corn to be donated to local
families. It was a great service experience and offered many new view points on
the idea of food as a right.
