The term ‘gleaning’ goes back to the Old Testament.  In Biblical times, when farmers harvested a field, they’d opt not to go over it a second time, so the poor could follow behind and gather the uncollected grain to feed themselves.  That ancient balancing of bounty and need is a lesson not lost on the modern-day volunteer organization, Gather Baltimore.  Producer Aaron Henkin brings us the story.
