DC Central Kitchen gleanings support local farms and help prevent food waste! Throughout the peak growing season, volunteers will meet us at local farms to pick fresh produce that they could otherwise not harvest or sell. DCCK will use these ingredients to prepare and deliver nutritious meals to community partners throughout DC. No experience is required!

Interested in joining? Gleaning season runs from late May through October! Sign up for a session today using our volunteer portal.

Gleaning shifts occur from 9 am to 12 pm, volunteers are encouraged to arrive at 8:45. No prior experience required.
