Gleaning to Feed a Starving America

Feeding the hungry is easier when it's free

Gleaning is a practice that's been around since biblical times. Gathering excess and imperfect crops that would otherwise go to waste and distributing them to people in need is a trend that has drawn attention all across the country.

It's an easy solution to the growing problem of hunger in America, but it takes diligent hands and compassionate hearts to get the goods from field to fork.

My Generation follows one inspiring group of young gleaners who are learning the power of a good deed.
