Southwest Ontario Gleaners
The SWO Gleaners is a dedicated inter-denominational charitable organization that provides FREE dehydrated vegetable mix and dehydrated fruit snacks for distribution to community partners and reputable relief agencies around the world.The unmarketable fruits and vegetables are donated by local growers, and volunteers carefully prepare the produce to be mechanically cleaned, diced, dried, and packaged for distribution.
Members of Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial regularly take a shift at the Leamington facility. We also participate in their Annual 24 hour Glean-a-thon. Along with 100 other WE Rotarians, we’ve chopped and peeled thousands of pounds of potatoes and peppers to make dehydrated soup mix to help combat food insecurity.
