What Is Gleaning?

Gleaning has been around for thousands of years. See Wikipedia ……..

In recent years there has been a rebirth of local gleaning groups across our nation and around the world. In the US there are the large national organizations addressing hunger and excess food in America, along the very important national food bank system. Most “Gleaning Groups” are local volunteer community organizations. There are three local gleaning groups in the central coast. Veggie Rescue, Backyard Bounty and Glean SLO.
