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:
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.
Learn about Gleaners’ efforts to promote government programs that provide food assistance to children, families and seniors.
Raising awareness of hunger and helping people make good choices about food are important aspects of Gleaners’ mission.
Hunger affects people from all walks of life. Hear from those whose lives have been touched by hunger.
