Make a difference in your community by picking fresh fruits and vegetables for your neighbors in need. Gleaning volunteers register, sign waivers, and are then notified of upcoming gleaning trips to sign up.

Volunteers, fully insured and supervised by experienced staff, come to your field and harvest crops that would otherwise go to waste. Gleaners work on your schedule, and donations are tax deductible.

Receive fresh, nutritious, local fruits and vegetables for your guests. Produce is harvested with the highest quality and safety standards, and delivered on your schedule.


Your contribution puts fresh, healthy, local food in the hands of our friends and neighbors in need.


Or make checks payable/send to: Farm Fresh Rhode Island c/o Hope’s Harvest – 10 Sims Ave. Suite 103 Providence, RI 02909


We are grateful to our business sponsors who believe in the power of farm-based food rescue to strengthen our local food system in ways that work for everyone. To find out more about becoming a sponsor, contact us.

“Our community of gleaners is diverse, generous, and welcoming”

Look up at the new friend picking kale alongside you. Our community of gleaners is diverse, generous, and welcoming. [Volunteers] kindness gives me hope for the future and comfort during these trying times.”

We struggled for years until Hope’s Harvest tackled the gleaning process

We knew that somebody could use our excess food, but we simply don’t have the time or resources to harvest and deliver to those who could use it. We struggled for years until Hope’s Harvest tackled the gleaning process.
