Gleaning/Urban Harvest

While researching a presentation, I came across this article about gleaning food. I thought it was a great primer on gleaning and had some good links, so I'm sharing it here. I'm also working on a list of links pertaining to topics such as gleaning, swap sites, etc. and will be sharing that soon.

One link I want to mention that isn't in the article is Ample Harvest. This is a nationwide listing of local food banks that will take your excess food. So, the next time you find yourself swimming in tomatoes, potatoes or some other home-grown yummy, take a look at Ample Harvest and see if you can't find someone in your own community that could make use of that food.
