Assignment to gleans

Your crew leader will send an e-mail with details about gleans for your area. We sometimes find out about crop donations on very short notice OR need to cancel or change locations, so please check your email regularly. Most crews regularly glean on Tuesday mornings. During peak harvest, we will add other days to the schedule.

Form or join a mini crew

Some gleaners enjoy working in small groups with family members or friends. They receive assignments from a crew leader, set their own schedules and deliver the harvest to nearby distribution sites.

  • If this sounds like a good arrangement for you, notify the crew leader when you are contacted as a new volunteer.
