Coffee Chats

Connect With Other Gleaners

Our coffee chats focus on a different topic each month that poses relevant to gleaning organizations around the country. Previous topics include: CRM management/options, legal questions, volunteer management, fundraising and anything relevant to our members. 

Zoom Once a Month

Coffee Chats take place once a month and the topic is decided ahead of time. While there is no formal format, and each chat is based around the needs of that topic, generally you can count on outside professionals, speakers, and/or experts in specific areas speaking for the first half of the call. The second half is your time to ask questions, connect with, and learn from one another.   

If you missed the January Coffee Chat on Self-Care – Overcoming Burnout. We discussed the concepts developed by Tricia Hersey, the founder of the Nap Ministry.  You can view a short video about the concept of Rest Is Resistance.

The Coffee Chat schedule continues in 2024.  All Coffee Chats are (10am PT/11am MT/Noon CT/1pm ET)
