1,100 friends and neighbors from Franklin and Adams Counties volunteered 4,200 hours of their time to The Gleaning Project's mission, picking, picking up, and moving 315,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables from waste to want.
We glean anytime there's food available - our busiest months are June through December.
Come once, once a month, once a week, or every other day. You’re always welcome…
Invite your work, school, or community group. Glean individually, with family, or friends.
When it fits your schedule and when it’s worth your time, we will love to see you out here.
Volunteer events with The Gleaning Project vary widely and can accommodate just about any schedule, age, ability, or interest level. Read on to learn more about the different ways you can volunteer, or click here to view our volunteer handbook.

"It's a simple hands-on way to prevent waste, make good use of resources, connect with community, and help those who need it, while also encouraging local ag and healthy eating. In short, it rocks!"
- Donna Kolaetis,
