A penny-per-pound fundraiser for The Gleaning Project of South Central PA


The Gleaning Project is South Central Pennsylvania's collaborative, nonprofit effort to reduce food loss on local farms, and increase food security in our communities.

Glean-A-Mania is our third annual penny-per-pound fundraiser. The idea is simple: We're asking our community members to pledge a penny for each pound of produce that we glean during one week in August (August 17-23, 2019).

A Penny per pound


The Gleaning Project is a non-profit community solution that gleans thousands of pounds of fresh, local produce every week. All food is donated by local growers and given away for free to those in need. 

For one week in August, we're asking our community to support our efforts with donations.  

The Franklin and Adams County chapters each hope to glean between 7,000-8,000 pounds of produce during Glean-A-Mania week, Aug 17-23. That is a lot of food! We're looking for pledges of 1 penny (or multiple pennies, or portions of pennies) for every pound we glean.

Make your pledge below, or download a digital Pledge Raising Kit containing everything you need to help us collect pledges for pennies from your friends, family, and neighbors.
