Food Assistance Programs

Food Assistance Programs

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.

All About SNAP

SNAP benefits and other anti-hunger programs are an important resource for our neighbors who may be recovering from a tough break and need a little temporary help getting back on their feet, or who need support during a crisis.

Senior Food Box Program (CSFP)


The Commodity Supplemental Food Program provides a monthly box of quality USDA food to income-eligible seniors

Meet Up and Eat Up

Meet Up and Eat Up is a collaborative movement to ensure that every child has access to nutritious meals 3 times a day, 365 days a year.

Mobile Pantries

Featuring an average of 13,000 pounds of food, the mobile pantry programs allows our partners to target specific areas of need where no pantry currently exists.
