Help Feed Hungry People in YOUR Community
Rescue Fruits & Veggies at Farms Near Kansas City

SIGN UP FOR GLEANING AND GET YOUR HANDS A LITTLE DIRTY

Rise and shine and bring your family and friends, corporate co-workers and congregations, groups and organizations to glean (harvest what’s left over) with After the Harvest. Together, you’ll rescue fruits and vegetables from farms, orchards and gardens. Then, we deliver the produce fresh from the field-you can help do that too if you can!-to pantries, kitchens and shelters feeding our hungry neighbors.

With morning weekday and some weekend gleaning events, from May through November-sometimes earlier and sometimes later depending on the weather and growing season-you’re sure to find a fit. All are welcome, including children of any age, who get to see how our food grows and where it comes from.

Please note: Gleanings are within 30-45 minutes of downtown Kansas City. We’ll contact you the week of your gleaning (sometimes up to the day before) with where and what you’ll be harvesting, based on what our growers tell us is available.

  • Our regular gleaning dates are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings with occasional last-minute gleanings occurring on other days of the week. You can sign up for a planned gleaning shift directly on our Volunteer Calendar.

  • Our gleanings usually begin at 7:30am and last for approximately three hours. Each gleaning is dependent on what is ready to pick and which farmers have extra for us to glean and provide to hungry people in the area. Sometimes we know specifics a week in advance, sometimes a day, but we do know that we’ll be harvesting, so you’ll see postings just stating that we’ll be gleaning "produce" at a nearby farm. We’ll post and e-mail the details as the date approaches.

  • After the gleaning, you'll have an opportunity to deliver the produce to one of our pantries or food agencies (our volunteers tell us this is often the most rewarding part of their experience).


In compliance with CDC and local health guidelines regarding COVID-19, we are implementing the following rules for all volunteer events. Violation of any rule will result in immediate dismissal from the event:

  • Volunteers must not exhibit any signs of illness currently or within the last 14 days
  • Volunteers must not have traveled outside of Kansas or Missouri in the last 14 days.
  • All volunteers older than two years must wear a facemask for the duration of the event. Homemade cloth masks and handkerchiefs are acceptable.
  • Volunteers from different households must maintain at least 6 feet of distance at all times.
  • Disposable food safety gloves should be worn when packing produce. We will provide disposable gloves for anyone who needs them.
  • All volunteers are required to complete an electronic waiver form before entering the field. Volunteers who have not completed the waiver will not be allowed to participate.
