We need your help to assist us in harvesting, sorting, and packing fresh local produce for families facing food insecurity. No farming or gardening experience is necessary to join us on a project!
We partner with farms across eastern Massachusetts to harvest their surplus crops, and also host volunteers at our facility in Acton to sort and pack food for distribution. All of volunteer projects are supervised by our experienced and knowledgeable staff.
Volunteer with us today by registering on our website: bostonareagleaners.org/volunteer! We look forward to working with you!
Mission: Boston Area Gleaners is committed to supporting an equitable, just, and sustainable local food system. We fulfill our mission by building innovative partnerships with local organizations and businesses in order to bridge food distribution gaps, improve healthy food access, prevent on-farm food waste, and create new markets for locally grown produce. Our vision is to sustain a permanent agricultural supply chain that will improve the viability of local farms and the health of communities who have historically suffered from inequity in the food system.
