Glean (verb): to gather produce or grain left in the fields by farmers

 

The Marin Organic School Lunch and Gleaning Program is helping to transform school lunch choices for our kids. Seven years ago, Marin Organic saw the potential in creatively connecting local farms to local schools through community gleanings. Now this extraordinary program enables 14,000 students from more than half of Marin's schools to eat organic foods grown in Marin each week, while fostering a strong sense of place in children.
