Gleaning Coordinator at After the Harvest

After the Harvest’s mission is to prevent hunger by rescuing fresh, nutritious produce that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it to organizations feeding hungry people. With a small staff and the help of thousands of local volunteers, we glean (harvest) farmers’ fields of excess produce and pick up already harvested excess produce from farms and markets and transport it to food banks, pantries and kitchens to feed our hungry neighbors, primarily in Greater Kansas City. We also secure truckloads of donated fruits and vegetables (that might otherwise end up in landfills) from large commercial producers and supply it to Harvesters and other food banks.
