          Gleaning is the process of harvesting leftover produce
       from grower’s fields after the commercial harvest. The
       produce is then donated to the Palm Beach County Food Bank
       and other food relief partners for distribution to individuals
       and families countywide.
          CROS Ministries is a local non-profit agency that holds
       annual gleaning events at local farms and is always in need
       of volunteers. It’s a great way to spend time outdoors while
       helping provide fresh produce to those in need.

       History Corner

          After World War I, a combination of events caused a real
       estate boom in south Florida. The production of affordable
       automobiles for a growing middle class turned the United
       States into a mobile society. New roads carried Americans
       southward, where a thriving economy encouraged them to
       buy land and build homes.
          Between 1915 and 1927, a system of connecting roads called
       the Dixie Highway, now called US Route 1, was completed along
       Florida’s east coast from Georgia as far south as Miami in 1926.
          By 1920, Florida had a population of nearly one million,
       which would grow by more than half in the next decade.   AFFORDABLE & RELIABLE IN-HOME CARE
       If the climate was not enough to entice the newcomers, in
       1924, the state amended its constitution for the first time to
       prohibit state income and inheritance taxes.            Companion Care    Personal Care    Live-In Care    Respite Care
