Check out this article which speaks about the growing grass-roots gleaning movement.
People are realizing that:
- we can no longer afford to waste food that falls on our yards or is left in our fields;
- we can no longer let people be hungry simply because they live over here and the food is lying over there;
- we build community, and our sense of purpose, when we collect fresh, local food and enable our neighbors to eat well.
Share the good news. Plant trees and come glean with us.
