  Extra or unharvested produce doesn’t go to waste when Healdsburg’s Farm to Pantry gleaners go into action. 

Melita Love, who founded the Farm to Pantry Gleaners seven years ago, says they have been helped enormously by the many Healdsburg area farmers who make their unused fruit and vegetables available to the group.
