Gleaning

Gleaning has its roots in Biblical times when the corners of farmers’ fields were left unharvested and overlooked or forgotten crops were ‘gleaned’ as sustenance for the poor, the hungry, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. Gleaning is as important today as it was in ancient times. This early form of welfare is now a humanitarian act of the modern world. Sign up as a volunteer today to learn more. The produce you glean will be distributed to those in need, including to Kosher Food Pantry clients, the Sherman House, and other organizations throughout the Lowcountry.
