Second Harvest Food Bank has assembled a team of volunteers to sort through 5,000 pounds of green beans.

The beans would have been thrown back in the field for fertilizer, but Hughes Farm in Crossville was able to donate them.

Second Harvest says it's the basics of food-banking.

"Our whole network was started to keep food out of the dumpster and out of the fields. And this is gleaning at its best. And then of course, it will go out to our 500 partners in our 18-county service area as soon as we get it sorted," said Elaine Streno.

Second Harvest says one-third of its clients are obese and a healthy donation like this helps their focus on fresh products.
