Girl Scout Harvest Day 
July 13, 2013 
Fun for the whole family! The Food Bank of the Northern Neck has started a model community project of gleaning the produce that grocery stores can't use. This means more access to fresh, healthy food for the families of the Northern Neck. At GS Harvest Day, we will be harvesting corn for the food bank. Girls and their families will get the opportunity to get up close to agriculture and find out how the food we eat is grown. Please bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy after the work is done!
