We will assemble at CVSan Offices at 21040 Marshall St and then visit pre-approved sites in Castro Valley from which to harvest extra fruit and vegetables. All gleaned food will be donated to a Castro Valley food pantry. Sign up to volunteer and let us know if you have a tree that needs gleaning, by contacting CVSan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 537-0757 ext. 112.
