Volunteers from the Clallam County Gleaners were hard at work in the commercial kitchen facility at the Lincoln Center in Port Angeles in late October, processing squash for the Operation Squash Out Hunger program. Pictured is Gwyn Wessel, who volunteers for the Food Bank in Sequim, feeds cooked squash through a tube to puree it, with assistance from Karlena Brailey. A truckload of squash donated by Sequim farmer Don Johnson was cut up, cooked, pureed and placed in seal-able plastic containers by volunteers. The cooked squash, which can stored in the refrigerator or freezer and used in stews, soups, breads, and more, will be made available to the food banks in Sequim and Port Angeles.
