Crop Donation Form

Thanks for thinking of GleanSLO and sharing your food with those in need! Please note that GleanSLO is a small, volunteer-powered organization with limited staff-time and harvesting resources- we are therefore unable to guarantee that we will be able to schedule a harvest with you, especially during busy seasons where we must prioritize properties with larger quantities of produce. See below for other options if GleanSLO is unable to schedule a harvest with you. Also note that for those harvests we are able to schedule, our equipment is limited and volunteers have limited abilities, so we cannot to guarantee that we will be able to harvest all the fruit you have to offer, but we will try our best! Thank you for being a part of the gleaning movement and sharing with our community!

Have you donated to GleanSLO in the past but want to let us know your crop is ready to pick this season? You may already be registered! Please contact Program Coordinator Hannah, hkenny@slofoodbank.org or (805) 235-1180, to arrange a glean.

All harvest participants will be trained in proper harvesting methods and sign waivers of liability that protect the crop owner as well as GleanSLO.

Privacy: Information entered here is used solely by GleanSLO and will not be available to the public. We do not share, sell or otherwise distribute your personal information.

Please read this Produce Quality Guide before registering your crop.

After first contact with the GleanSLO coordinator, it may take up to 10 days to harvest and distribute crops. We greatly appreciate advanced notice of crops you hope to donate!

If you have questions, please contact us at hkenny@slofoodbank.org.

In the case that GleanSLO is unable to help you share your produce, consider the following alternatives:

If you are able to harvest the crops yourself...
-Food can be dropped off to the SLO Food Bank warehouse or another local partner agency near you! (contact the SLO Food Bank for locations of nearby partner agencies)
-Put out a basket of already harvested fruit for neighbors and passersby to take for their own enjoyment!
If you are unable to harvest the crops yourself...
-Place a sign in your yard for passersby and neighbors to harvest what they would like from your tree(s) or garden!

Which of the following describes your donation?






Currently, as a program of the SLO Food Bank, GleanSLO harvests according to storage and distribution capacity of the food bank and its partner agencies. We do not currently harvest loquats, wine grapes, olives, or any type of nuts due to either very short shelf life, need for processing, lack of demand, or potential allergy issues.
