Maine Gleaning Week is an annual event organized by members of the Maine Gleaning Network, a coalition of groups and organizations across the state working with local farms to collect surplus produce and distribute it to people experiencing food insecurity. This year, Gleaning Week events will focus on community building and celebrating the vital role of volunteers in this effort.
