Boston Area Gleaners

Who We Are

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing surplus farm crops for people in need. We deliver high quality, local produce to pantries and meal programs by working closely with local farmers, providing volunteer labor to harvest what would otherwise be plowed under.

What We Do

We partner with farms in Eastern Massachusetts to glean their surplus crops: harvest, sort through, and collect surplus fruits and vegetables.  Our workforce of gleaners is entirely comprised of volunteers.  All of the volunteer gleaning trips are supervised by experienced staff, and all proper harvesting techniques are taught to the volunteers. 

No farming or gardening experience is necessary to join us on a gleaning trip!
