What is Gleaning?
Gleaning is collecting excess fresh foods from farms, gardens, farmers markets, grocers and restaurants that would otherwise go to waste for those in need in our community. In collaboration with the Rondout Valley Growers Association’s Farm to Food Pantry Program and Family of Woodstock, UlsterCorps volunteers help out with weekly gleanings at local farms throughout the growing season. Help out every week (typically Mondays from June through October) or whenever you can.
