Haywood Gleaners works with producers to identify fields that have recently been harvested. Volunteers then come pick anything left behind and deliver it to a variety of organizations that help those in need.
Gleans typically begin in August. Volunteers are also needed on Saturdays and Wednesdays to help pick up unsold goods from participating farmers markets in Waynesville and Canton.
