Plans for 2021

Our “planned” building addition is COMPLETED!!

new addition at Peace Country Gleaners - Sept 2021

(posted Sept 23/21)

Donations this year have been exceptionally generous and so we have exceeded our fundraising goal by a significant amount!
This will enable us to upgrade our building and equipment to serve much more effectively in the future; do not let the generosity of others discourage your giving but rather be encouraged to continue to support PCGS. As a board we are very grateful for each volunteer and donor.
Our “planned” building addition is well on the way to being completed; the much needed tractor has been purchased at a local auction and some potato harvesting and processing equipment has been purchased a Ritchie Brothers auction.
A hearty thanks from the PCGS board!!

We are planning to add a 60’ x 60’ addition to our processing building. This is for cold storage (with a concrete floor; this will enable us to use our electric forklift) so that all our empty barrels and unused pallets are stored in a dry location.
Also for our planting and harvesting we are needing a 110 hp tractor.
Our regular planting, weeding, harvesting and processing activities will continue through out the year.

Peace Country Gleaners Society Fundraiser Auction on May 29th

raised just over 60,000.00!!!!

A big thank you to everyone who donated items for the auction, helped to  prepare breakfast and lunch and donated funds or helped in any other way!
All of this is very encouraging to PCGS and helps feed some of the hungry people in our world as we provide dried soup ingredients.

For your donation, please consider our plans for 2021!
