"There's always corn there that we say is not sellable. It’s certainly edible, but it’s just not perfect," a farmer explains.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The weather is bringing in decent harvests for farmers this year, and that means more local produce at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

The food bank is working with local farmers to rescue fresh produce, called gleaning. They take the fruits and veggies that would otherwise get tilled back into the soil.

“There’s always corn there that we say is not sellable. It’s certainly edible, but it’s just not perfect. So that’s what the gleaning process does. It comes in and gets that stuff that’s leftover in the field after I get what I can sell,” said Art King of Harvest Valley Farms.

King estimates about 80 dozen ears of corn were left in the field that would have otherwise gone to waste.
