Gleaning Trip Volunteer

​Gleaning is an activity anyone can do: harvesting crops like tomatoes, beans or apples. With a few hours of free time, you can do something really meaningful.

Service Workdays

Bring friends or colleagues out to do meaningful work in a beautiful farm setting. You can help us rescue farm-fresh food for families in need by setting up a service workday this season! This opportunity is for a three-hour gleaning experience for 8 to 30+ individuals (volunteers must be at least 13 years old).

How you help In 2017, with the help of volunteers we gleaned over 635,000 pounds of 60 crop types from 50 farms in eastern Massachusetts. We distributed these nutritious fruits and vegetables to our partner hunger relief agencies that serve our food-insecure neighbors.
About us Since 2004, we have organized groups of volunteers to harvest surplus crops from local farms. We organize volunteer trips to local farms to harvest high-quality fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. We distribute the nutritious produce to agencies serving families facing food insecurity. Together, we can build a sustainable supply chain of healthy produce from local farms to people in need.
