New Jersey Farmers Against Hunger (FAH) is a “gleaning” program. Volunteers help glean, or harvest, surplus produce from farms across NJ, and FAH staff distribute the produce to community organizations that serve those in need: food banks, soup kitchens, church pantries, and other hunger relief agencies. FAH also collects surplus produce from grocery stores and wholesalers, rescuing more than 1.5 million pounds of produce annually from all sources. This gleaned produce helps feed about 7,500 people weekly during the harvest season, and because it is food that would otherwise have been thrown away, gleaning also helps reduce food waste. FAH works with more than 50 farms and about 85 community organizations, and relies on help from about 1,200 volunteers each year. Please consider joining FAH in the fight against hunger and food waste. To receive notifications of gleaning volunteer activities, you can join our email list by visiting our website at www.njagsociety.org or by emailing Lynn Flannery at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow us on Facebook at NJ Farmers Against Hunger or Twitter at @NJ_FAH to get updates.
