Thanks to Richmond.com, who did a lovely piece on the gleaning program at the Farmers Market at St. Stephen's. Feel free to read the article, and please let us know if you have ideas for fully integrating all of the components of a responsible food system.

Considering the Food System
Those of us who work in the food system are feel very happy if we can engage other agencies and efforts in our projects, and we are truly lucky if we can consider everything from the sustainability of production and responsibility of potential waste. At the Farmers Market at St. Stephen's, we have been blessed to work with farmers, consumers, as well as our food pantry and other agencies that could use the food left over from the market.
