PBS: The age-old practice of ‘gleaning’ is feeding people during the pandemic

 

 

With 13 garden plots in five different counties, the Alliance’s Arkansas Gleaning Project has gleaned over 219,000 pounds of fresh produce in 2020 — all through the hard work of our gardening team, Full Circle FarmCorps service members, and 277 amazing volunteers. This is equivalent to about 183,307 meals for Arkansans in need.
