What did you glean today? by David Parish


Gleaning was an ancient and widespread practice across many cultures. David Parish translates it into the modern practice of gleaning slightly out-of-date or overstock food from supermarkets and donating it to the homeless and deprived. But it extends beyond food. A large company asked if they could send volunteers to help out at a foodbank. Can you use margins of your time to give professional advice pro bono, or a free service on your slack day to those on benefits, or some spare office space to a charity?
