Village Harvest and other San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit groups are volunteering to pick excessive fruit from homeowners' yards and other plots of land to donate to food banks, soup kitchens and organizations that help the needy. Urban harvesting, or gleaning, aims to collect fruit that normally goes to waste after it goes unpicked and falls to the ground. Village Harvest has donated thousands of pounds of fruit to local organizations. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
