We work with our region's largest farms and orchards, dozens of backyard gardeners, and everyone in between. 


No farmer wants to see their food go to waste. They know how good it is… and all that it took to grow it.

Bryan Bender, Bender Farms

No farmer wastes food. Farmers know exactly how much work and how many resources it takes. They hate waste. They grow for a living. If they could sell their goods for a profit, they would.

When local farmers and fruit growers can’t sell for profit, when they have excess, they can turn to The Gleaning Project.

Reduction of waste on the farm is philosophically great. Social justice. You guys make it so easy.
— Ben Wenk, Three Springs Fruit Farm
