    2. 2. Gleaning the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers fields after they have beencommercially harvested or on fields where it is not economically profitable to harvest
    3. 3. Over 2000000 lbs of viable produce aretilled under every year for various reasons.
    4. 4. Problem Definition1) Gleaning coordinators need an easy tool to notify volunteers of an upcoming gleaning event2) Volunteers need an easy tool to register for, accept or decline gleaning events3) Gleaning coordinator needs to be able perform data collection and reporting
    5. 5. Current Solution• Gleaning coordinator manually calls volunteers and handles scheduling• Gleaning coordinator hand writes data on paper and manually enters into spreadsheet• Gleaning coordinator manually compiles reporting information for Food BankThis leaves the gleaning coordinator no time tosetup relationship with the farmers
    6. 6. Proposed Solution• Allow volunteers to electronically signup for gleaning events in their surrounding area.• Allow volunteers to be automatically notified of gleaning events in their area• Allow gleaning coordinators the ability to run standardized reports• Historical data collection
    7. 7. Technology Choice• Python (CGI) dynamic creation of web pages and interaction with database. – Django module – SQLAlchemy module• MySQL database for backend.
