Day 651

1. Reading a great article about “gleaning“.  I had never heard of this term before – but really appreciated what I learned!

2. Learning about a variety of organizations all over North America that glean food for the benefit of others.  I was very happy to read about this ‘secret underground’ of happy activists!

3. Discovering that Minnesota has a few gleaning programs that have been around for many years!  SUPER cool.

(Want to get involved in gleaning, but don’t know where to start?  Check out these resources:
