The Gleaning Project coordinates volunteers to get out to farms, orchards, and gardens and pick - or pick up - fresh fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste.  


We use volunteers to distribute this good food to community partners working to alleviate hunger and improve nutrition: food pantries, shelters, senior centers, doctors and dentists targeting low-income communities, WIC, community soup kitchens, other needs assistance agencies, school hunger-relief programs, etc...


Can gleaning end hunger?  Can our community work together to share all the bounty and benefits of fresh fruits and veggies grown right here in South Central PA? 


The Gleaning Project invites you to help us all.  We're going to find out.
