food rescue

From The Lexicon of Sustainability:

FOOD RESCUE The practice of gleaning the produce remaining in fields after a harvest to help alleviate food insecurity in local communities.
“While we have a viable food system now for those who can afford it, we definitely don’t have a viable food system for people who can’t. Gleaning is a way to make up the difference.”
