The National Gleaning Project

The NGP supports gleaning and food recovery efforts in the United States.

This site provides information on national and state laws and regulations pertaining to gleaning, food recovery, and food donation; an interactive map of gleaning and food recovery organizations across the country; and reports and research created by the National Gleaning Project team. Gleaning and food recovery organizations can contribute tools like waivers, volunteer handbooks, and other documents useful to their group in the Community Resource Library.
