FRUIT TREE & FARM GLEANING PROGRAM
The Fruit Tree and Farm Gleaning Program utilizes volunteers to harvest and redistribute thousands of pounds of fresh fruit and produce from homes, farms and orchards that would otherwise go to waste, and re-distributes the produce back to the community.
The program increases access to fresh local produce for people who need it, decreases food waste and emissions , and decreases bears and other animal attractants.
- 1/3 of the harvest (or more) goes to other local community organizations and LUSH Valley food programs
- 1/3 of the harvest goes to volunteers
- Up to 1/3 goes to homeowners
