Who we are

Who we are

Gleaning is the practice of harvesting excess produce from farms, yards and gardens. It is a part of a home-grown solution to reducing food waste, increasing access to fresh and nutritious produce to our community members in need, and strengthening local community food systems. If you see an overflowing garden or tree going to waste, contact the owner to see if they would appreciate gleaning assistance.

WSU Kitsap County Extension and Kitsap Harvest coordinate the Kitsap County Glean Team, a group of volunteers that will come out and harvest produce throughout the county for donations to local food access organizations. This makes a great service project for community groups and families looking for volunteer opportunities.

Check out the programs to learn more about what Kitsap Harvest is doing in the community and how we are increasing food access for our neighbors in need.
