Call the Gleaners

Del Mar’s home garden citrus trees are now weighing heavy with ready-to-pick fruit. Making a donation of this high impact nutrition is as easy as calling Senior Gleaners. Senior Gleaners has been harvesting and distributing local produce to the food insecure for thirty years. A team of trained volunteers will schedule a time usually early day to pick and deliver the fruit to organizations such as Jewish Family Service, Interfaith Community Services, faith organizations, veteran groups, senior centers and other organizations serving the hungry.


What are the benefits for you? Improve the health of your fruit trees; eliminate your food and yard waste and receive a tax receipt. As an assurance, the federal Bill Emerson Samaritan Food Donation Act protects food donors. Senior Gleaners carries organizational liability insurance.


Senior Gleaners will present their program services at the Del Mar Public Library on Saturday, March 16, 2024 from 10:30 to 11:30 am. Contact Senior Gleaners at 619-633-9180 or
