GleanKY makes over 40 gleaning trips each week during the peak growing season, and gleans 365 days a year. Since 2010, over 500 volunteers rescued 1.4 million pounds of fresh produce from going to waste and delivered it directly to GleanKY's 100+ partner recipient sites, serving an estimated 50,000 food-insecure Kentuckians over the course of the year. Word of GleanKY's work is spreading - GleanKY has grown from a Lexington-focused effort to a regional nonprofit. By 2020, GleanKY aims to glean and deliver produce in all 17 'Bluegrass' counties in Kentucky.
Gleaning requires a lot of people's help, at all times of the year. Those interested in getting involved with our work can learn more about volunteering at our website: gleanky.org
