Harvest Pierce County's Gleaning Project

The Gleaning Project is a volunteer program of Harvest Pierce County that works to reduce the amount of food waste in our community, provide more fresh food to those in need, and build community.

What is Gleaning?

Gleaning is the ancient practice of collecting leftover produce after commercial harvest. For centuries field gleaning has been a valuable resource to people in poverty. Many formal gleaning programs like Harvest Pierce County’s Gleaning Project have been established to help meet the growing need for food assistance, minimize waste, and build community.
