Want to volunteer with a small group for less than 1.5 hours? Grocery Gleaning is a great way to spend your morning making a big impact. ProduceGood partners with grocers in Encinitas, Carlsbad, Carmel Valley and Escondido to sort their excess produce that's still perfectly edible, and connect it with a feeding partner in the area.

We reduce waste and help fight hunger in one sweet step!
