Historically, gleaning began
in the Washington DC area in 1988 as a result of a conference held by national
and local leaders concerned with hunger in our nation's capital. Initially, the
Society of St. Andrew, a national hunger organization, sponsored gleaning in
the Washington DC area beginning in 1988. Today, as an outgrowth of these
efforts, the Mid- Atlantic Gleaning Network is established as a nonprofit
organization to conduct gleaning in the National Capital region. Annually, we
provide more than 3 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to hungry
people in our area. 

Mid Atlantic Gleaning Network links farmers who
have crops that are edible but not marketable with those who distribute food to
the needy through the work of volunteers
