14.3 million pounds of food goes to waste on Vermont farms every summer. At the invitation of the farmers, non-profits like Community Harvest of Central Vermont organize people to pick fruits, vegetables, and berries that are unsalable by the farmer. This process of gleaning saves millions of pounds of food from the waste stream each year, while getting nutritious, locally grown produce to vulnerable neighbors.
