Join us for the 2023 Amaizing Sweet Corn Glean-A-Thon & Festival! After the Harvest’s annual Sweet Corn Glean-A-Thon & Festival is an exciting weeks-long event that brings together the community to gather and donate sweet corn to local food pantries. This annual event is a one-of-a-kind way to get involved in the fight against hunger and make a difference in the lives of those in need. Last summer, 13 teams of volunteers helped us harvest more than 50,000 ears of sweet corn from three Kansas City-area farms, and teams delivered the bounty to local agencies and food pantries. This July, we’re doing it again! Over the course of two weeks, gleaning teams will choose a day in which they’ll have a 3-hour window to harvest as much sweet corn from as possible from an ATH Partner Farm. All harvested sweet corn will be delivered to Kansas City-area food pantries, community kitchens, and other agencies that feed food insecure individuals in our community. The Glean-A-Thon concludes with the Amaizing Sweet Corn Festival at the National Agricultural Center & Hall of Fame.

With so many ways to give, glean, gather, grow and get involved, we can’t wait to welcome you to After the Harvest. Take your pick.


It doesn’t take much to do a lot. The time is now: Feeding America estimates that 43 million people in the U.S. didn’t have enough food in 2021 (pre-pandemic–35 million). The crisis of food insecurity in our region due to the pandemic is far from over.

One single dollar can provide more than eight pounds of produce. Every dollar supports gleaning and helps us bring in semi-truckloads of fresh produce that might otherwise be thrown away. Give today.


From families and groups, to individuals, organizations and corporations, After the Harvest volunteers of all ages glean, manage events, fundraise and even represent us as Yambassadors. Find out how you can help.


It’s a simple mission, yet our impact is powerful. We fight hunger and improve nutrition with fresh produce that not only fills the belly, but also nourishes the body. All while reducing food waste.
