Saturdays, Sept. 21-Oct. 26
Yam Jam will take place six Saturdays (Sept. 21 through Oct. 26) to glean sweet potatoes at area farms. These family-friendly activities provide sweet potato to dozens of food pantries throughout central North Carolina. The marquee event will be on Oct. 5 at First Fruit Farm, about 35 minutes from Wake Forest near Louisburg. This farm is owned by Jason Brown, the former pro football player who gave up his career to grow crops primarily to donate to those in need. Gleaning will be part of Jason's Harvest Festival on that day. Enjoy games, a pumpkin patch, live music, a trolley ride, food & much more. Please register with Society of St. Andrew, the organization that sponsors gleaning across North Carolina.
