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.
Our goal for gleaning in 2014 is to double the fresh produce we make available to Charleston's hungry.
Please join us for the next gleaning opportunities on:
Sunday, October 19th | 10:30 am
At Rosebank Farms
3951 Betsy Kerrison Pkwy, Johns Island, SC
