The activity is available from June to November. Harvested produce will be handed to a food bank that will distribute it to those in need.
How come there are some unharvested crops out there?
Mostly, produce is left unharvested because it’s considered ugly – too small, too big, too wonky, crooked or misshapen. The farmers are unable to sell such fruits and vegetables to the supermarkets and opt not to harvest them at all. We’ve already collected over 15 tons of produce since we started gleaning.
