These volunteers are picking radishes at a farm in Waltham, all for donation to hunger relief agencies.


Join us in harvesting surplus crops for donation to hunger relief agencies in eastern Massachusetts! We are based in Waltham, and we travel to farms within a 1-hr. distance of of our office. We organize staff-supervised volunteer groups to go to farms to harvest and sort through donated produce. We train all volunteers each trip on proper produce harvesting and handling procedures - no experience required.

To Sign Up: Visit our website (www.bostonareagleaners.org) and click "Volunteer to Glean".
Once you are registered, we will email you when there gleaning opportunities or you can check our website.
During our busy season (August through December), we typically glean Thursday-Monday. There can be anywhere from 1-3 trips per day. Each trip will last around 3 hours which does not include drive time to and from the farm.

Volunteers are able to help out whenever their schedule allows. You pick the day, time, crop and location!
