Gleaning Farm-Fresh Food For Those in Need

Reducing Food Waste and Food Insecurity

A Project of the Foodshed Alliance


The mission of the Foodshed Alliance’s LocalShare program is to connect people in need to locally grown, natural foods. By involving the volunteer efforts of everyone in our community, we glean foods from local fields, turning what farmers could not harvest into nutrition for our neighbors who need it most.

This is accomplished by rescuing healthy, fresh food that cannot be sold at market, getting it to people in need, teaching them how to cook and preserve it, and creating community through “pay-what-you-can” dinners.
