But this is just what I know. At any rate, we were there for approximat­ely a year when there was a huge snowstorm in town, and the roof caved in. And that shut us down for a good nine months. Yeah, in the meantime, we were obviously looking for another place. And lo and behold, we fell upon Cypress Meat Packers, which is really where we are now. And it was for sale. And the gentleman who owned it has basically bankrolled us. He has allowed us to have a mortgage through himself rather than going through the bank and that kind of thing. And so ultimately, at the end of this month, we will officially have paid that off.”

The Prairie Gleaners are not affiliated with any church, though they are a Christian organizati­on, and they operate solely through volunteer donations.

“I just go over there as many times a week as I can. And I walk away every time just absolutely pumped that this is happening,” said Grossman.
