What is fruit recovery?
Fruit recovery or “gleaning”, is an ancient practice where surplus or leftover produce is collected from commercial, public, and privately owned farms, fruit trees, or gardens based on an agreed partnership between the gleaner and the owner. This practice reduces produce waste and brings people together in improving a community’s food security status.
