For years, CanDo volunteers noticed with dismay the amount of fruit on backyard trees around Napa that isn’t harvested and instead just falls and rots on the ground. In 2020, working with the CANV Food Bank, we started CanDo’s Gleaning Project. As of mid-2021, our volunteer gleaners had completed 15 gleans and rescued 3,354 pounds of fruit donated to the CANV Food Bank for distribution. There are two ways to participate in this important project: as a donor (you have too many oranges or tomatoes or cherries in your garden), or as a gleaner (you’d love to join our friendly crew as an on-call harvester).
