Gleaning

Gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers’ fields after they’ve been commercially harvested, or from fields where it’s not economically profitable for the farmer to harvest. Bay Area Food Bank assembles volunteers to harvest and pack the produce into boxes, then the food is transported back to the food bank for distribution to our partner agencies. We've partnered with several area farms to glean Satsumas and are always looking for new opportunities.

 

If your farm is looking to get involved in our gleaning program, contact:

Vanessa Cochran, Garden and Agriculture Projects Manager, at (251) 653-1617 ext. 114 or vcochran@bayareafoodbank.org
