GTF is short for an old Jewish law and custom called “Gleaning the Fields.” The specific reference can be found in Leviticus 19:9-10 which states;
“When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the Lord your God.”
A farmer who owned crops on his land was to leave a boundary along his fences for the poor and was instructed as well to allow what was missed in the first harvesting of the land to be picked up by the poor. The law was not so much to help the poor, but as a reminder to the owner of the crops and land that once you were a slave and debtor and God brought you out of slavery and debt from Egypt and gave you this land.
There is a debate in America on who should own things. One side says the State should own things. The other side says the individual should own things. But the Jewish/Christian side says God owns everything and we are asked to take care of what is given to us, to multiply it, and care for the orphan, widow, and those in need.
GTF exists to help a corporation realize its bottom line: both profits and people. Without changing any production or marketing costs, GTF can show a company how to make more money and also to help the poor and the environment, but even more to change those who work in the corporate culture to give them a transcendent purpose.
To become a national organization of “bridge builders” with the purpose of providing financial funding, humanitarian support, and shelter for widows, orphans, vulnerable children, and those in extreme poverty.
