RAPB+GFLR Young Pro­fes­sion­als Net­work (YPN) ‘Glean’ to ben­e­fit The Palm Beach County Food Bank

The Palm Beach Post - Residences - - Front Page -

The Real­tors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Laud­erdale Young Pro­fes­sion­als Net­work (YPN) spent a day of giv­ing…and glean­ing…to ben­e­fit the Palm Beach County Food Bank as part of the Florida YPN Com­mu­nity Out­reach Day, a state-wide ini­tia­tive whereby YPN chap­ters through­out the state give back to their com­mu­ni­ties through vol­un­teer events.

Real­tors®, af­fil­i­ates and their fam­i­lies worked on a cu­cum­ber farm in West­ern Del­ray Beach, where they “gleaned.” Glean­ing is a food re­cov­ery strat­egy that al­lows farm­ers to do­nate fresh crops that are deemed “un­mar­ketable,” but equally safe to eat and nu­tri­tious.

“It’s amaz­ing to see our Young Pro­fes­sion­als take time out of their busy sched­ules to give back to the com­mu­nity,” said YPN Com­mit­tee Chair­man Chase John­son, a Real­tor® with Con­ti­nen­tal Proper- ties. “As ad­vo­cates for the com­mu­ni­ties in which we work, we wanted to do our part to en­sure the Palm Beach County Food Bank has crops to pro­vide for the food in­se­cure.”

It is es­ti­mated that 200,000 Palm Beach County res­i­dents don’t know where their next meal will come from.
