Gleaning is the act of harvesting or collecting excess food from farms, farmers’ markets and gardens.
MCCD Gleaning Coordinator and volunteers then deliver the produce to local charitable organizations. We establish connections with food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and schools throughout Merrimack County to ensure that food insecure residents of all ages have easier access to fresh, nutrient-dense food options. MCCD is committed to reinforcing the importance of a healthy diet, fostering “locavorism” across all socio-economic lines.
We appreciate your support!
