Traditionally, the term “gleaning” was coined when farmers collected leftover crops from their fields after they had been commercially harvested. In modern times this practice continues with nonprofits who glean farms and farmers markets to feed the hungry and for-profits who glean to make value added products out of crops that would have otherwise been wasted. The following organizations provide gleaning opportunities for volunteers, products from gleaned items, and guidance to those interested in learning more about where and how to glean.
