I think what makes the combination of the hard work, enthusiasm, and community spirit of gleaners with the support and assistance from Linn Benton Food Share is just this: it is a true partnership between equals. Gleaners are powerful, independent people who are proud of what they do, and those feelings of independence, power and pride are carefully nurtured and honored by Linn Benton Food Share as it works to give Gleaners the tools they need to be successful. I am convinced that this approach to helping local folks solve local problems is a model all communities should consider when seeking ways to empower local folks to solve local problems.
