The National Gleaning Project

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

This site provides information on national and state laws and regulations pertaining to gleaning and food donation, an interactive map of gleaning and fresh food recovery organizations across the country, and other topical resources.

We anticipate additions to the available resources, including state-specific fact-sheets on gleaning and food donation liability.
