About this Event
Come join Net Impact Boston for a service workday with Boston Area Gleaners at a local farm in the Greater Boston area.
Never gleaned before? Now's your chance! Gleaning is the act of collecting surplus crops from farmers' fields. In ancient times, landowners invited peasants onto their fields after the main harvest to take what was left over. Gleaning was a method of improving food security for the poor.
Boston Area Gleaners harvests high-quality fruits and vegetable that would otherwise go to waste, and distributes 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.
