greatest volunteers. Alex continues to come out and support the gleaning projects and

brings volunteers as well. He is one of the ones that we can count on to show up and

The tomatoes gleaned on Saturday were picked specifically for Bruno Serato

founder of Caterina’s Club an organization that feeds pasta to over 1,800 kids every

night five days a week. The president of Loaves and Fishes x10 made it his mission

to make sure that Bruno received as many crates as possible that Saturday so that

he could have fresh tomatoes for his sauce.
