Each year, Gleaners distributes millions of pounds of food through our network of partner pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers and other agencies that directly feed hungry people. We also reach our neighbors in need through mobile distributions and programs that are designed to directly reach children.

Cooking Matters TM

Cooking Matters TM is a groundbreaking nutrition-education program that connects low-income individuals and families with food by teaching them how to prepare healthy, tasty meals on a limited budget.

Kids Helping Kids

Gleaners Community Food Bank partners with local schools to end child hunger one school at a time. Food is distributed year-round, including summer months when the risk of child hunger is at its greatest. 


Gleaners' Gardens

Gleaners' gardens are dedicated to teaching nutrition through gardening, and to providing fresh, local fruits and vegetables to the hungry in our community. 

Mobile Pantries

Gleaners Community Food Bank and its partner agencies are providing food to neighborhoods by the truckload! Featuring an average of 14,000 pounds of food, the mobile pantry allows our partners to target areas of need where no pantry currently exists.

Meet Up and Eat Up

Meet Up and Eat Up and our after-school food programs help to provide meals to children and families 3 times a day, 365 days a year.
