Ride for Food
Thank you to everyone who got active to fight food insecurity at the 10th annual Ride for Food!
This year, riders on the Gleaners' Ride for Food team participated both virtually and in-person to raise funds for gleaning operations. You can still donate to the Gleaners' team and team members through November 30th!
We host volunteer gleaning trips and food packing projects throughout the year. Our safety practices have been carefully revamped this year in consideration of COVID-19. Please visit our Volunteer Page to review our updated health & safety protocols and register to volunteer!
Join us on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for gentle and choice-filled yoga classes with Tess Tomlinson!
What is yoga to gleaning? This is a question we have been exploring at BAG since staff started adding moments of practice together after strenuous days of harvesting, loading and leading trips. As the years passed and circumstances changed, BAG wanted to freely extend the opportunity to anyone with interest, so that together and with more voices, we could still explore that question. Yoga has a far broader scope than practicing poses. Yoga philosophy speaks to practices and ethical frameworks like non-violence, truthfulness and energy management that we can engage with internally and with others to support sustainable life for all. Sound a little like gleaning?
We invite you to explore ideas, effort, sensation and ease in class, in the comfort of your home, with or without your camera on, whether you've stepped on a yoga mat before or not. Perhaps one day after yoga, you'll find yourself on a volunteer harvest— and our hope is that the experiences are made mutually richer for having done some of each.
