Mission Statement

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing surplus farm crops for people in need. We deliver high quality, local produce to pantries and meal programs by working closely with local farmers, providing volunteer labor to harvest what would otherwise be plowed under. To learn more about our work, please visit our website.

Description

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 and/or sort through storage crops. 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 do so on our website.
