We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing surplus farm crops for people facing food insecurity. We deliver high quality, local produce to pantries and meal programs by working closely with local farmers, providing volunteer labor to harvest and pack food that would otherwise be plowed under. To learn more about our work, please visit our website.
When farmers have surplus produce that they would like to donate, they contact our Gleaning Coordinators and we organize staff-supervised volunteer trips to go out to those farms and harvest their crops, as well as to sort and pack food into boxes for distribution. All of the produce that we glean from farms is donated to our partner hunger relief agencies.
Interested volunteers are encouraged to sign up on our website. Farmers interested in donating to us can also register on our site.
