Pepper Place Farmers Market

Through a partnership with the Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) Alabama Gleaning Network, IPC members have an opportunity to help reduce food waste while providing for our neighbors in need. SoSA needs volunteers at the Pepper Place Farmers' Market each Saturday in the summer to gather, weigh, and organize leftover produce from the farmers at the end of the market.
This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity! At least six (6) volunteers are needed each Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm. IPC dates for this opportunity will be June 17, July 15, and July 29. We would like to staff all volunteer positions on those dates with IPC members.

Money raised is divided equally amongst the three organizations, supporting IPC’s Social Services, Kirkwood’s Life Care Fund, and Living River’s Scholarship Fund. The appeal is governed by a board of directors from the three organizations and is led this year by Sandy Bean, Jim Snow, Denise Moore, Margaret Brunstad, Matt Lyons, William Widman, and Sarah Sexton.
