End Hunger

It all started with a dream and an idea. The dream was that no one should go hungry while food was going to waste. The idea was to create a distribution network that would provide local non-profit agencies with a low cost, reliable source of food for hungry people. Today we accomplish this mission through:

  • Food Distribution

    Gleaners is a vital link between available food and those who need it most. Gleaners collects, warehouses, repacks and distributes many millions of pounds of food for over 400 local partners.

  • Government Programs

    Learn about Gleaners’ efforts to promote government programs that provide food assistance to children, families and seniors.

  • Education & Training

    Raising awareness of hunger and helping people make good choices about food are important aspects of Gleaners’ mission.

  • Hunger Stories
