Androscoggin Gleaners

Inspiring Impactful Change

Androscoggin Gleaners was founded in 2017 to be a place for the community to support local growers as well as move toward increasing food access for all. We work to reduce food insecurity and food waste in Androscoggin county through harvest of excess food from local farms and re-distribution to emergency food providers and other food access points where people live and gather.
