Urban Fruit Gleaning

A video from the Portland Fruit Tree Project explaining how volunteers collect fresh fruit that grows on neighborhood trees, and drops it off at local Food Banks for distribution to those in need. The great thing about this program is that in large part, the fruit would not be harvested or eaten by anyone—if not for fruit gleaning. Everyone involved benefits, including the trees, as harvesting is beneficial to their health!

Abundance, Waste, and Hunger

Great video where gleaners talk about waste over a background of photos of gleaners rescuing red lettuce from a field for distribution to food banks and soup kitchens. Ag Against Hunger organized the glean and refrigerated and distributed the food. The Gleaning Stories Project collected the audio, took the photos, and produced the video.
