Farm Gleaning

Our region’s farmers are brilliant, hardworking folks who produce an amazing diversity of foods. However, not all produce makes it to market each week and that’s where we work with these farmers to connect fresh, delicious food with our communities.

An offshoot of our successful Fruit Tree Project, farm gleaning is a professional, primarily volunteer-run service that rescues and redistributes surplus produce.

From farm to community

Our goal is to increase access to nutritious, local produce for people experiencing food insecurity in the region. Currently, all farm produce is distributed to the community through the Food Rescue Project

Participating farms are given tax receipts for the fair market value of the food we glean from their farm. We organize the logistics, track all food harvested, picked-up and distributed, and cultivate relationships with farms to continue supporting our community.
