Your citrus is important to us, and we appreciate your donations. When dropping off your citrus donations, citrus should not have leaves, stems, decay etc.

Changes in Citrus Gleaning

We anticipate having a very limited number of volunteers to glean in 2023 and are limited by volunteer availability. Registration with St. Mary’s Food Bank does not guarantee that we will be able to glean your trees. We recommend looking for alternative means to glean your trees in advance.
