Gleaning to provide hunger relief

Gleaning to provide hunger relief

LITTLE ROCK, AR−The practice of gleaning − hand gathering produce, grains and other crops left in the fields after harvest− is almost as old as agriculture itself.  In 2008 the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance partnered with the Society of Saint Andrew to form the Arkansas Gleaning Project.  The Project gleans fields and orchards around the state. Fields for gleaning are graciously donated by Arkansas growers. The produce gleaned is then given to local food banks, pantries, soup kitchens and shelters that feed or distribute food to their neighbors in need.
