The Harnett County 4-H Sweet Potato Gleaning on October 11th was our most successful to date. 70 4-H members, volunteers, local church members, and Harnett County Cooperative Extension staff gleaned 20,000 pounds of sweet potatoes to help the 14.5% of North Carolina families who are not food secure. 12,000 pounds were given to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina that serves 34 counties. 8,000 pounds went to support local food banks here in Harnett County. We would like to thank David and Clay Gardener for allowing us to glean sweet potatoes from their fields. This wonderful project would not be possible without local support from farmers in our county.
