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. This early form of welfare is now a humanitarian act of the modern world.
