Nearly one in eight people in Gleaners’ 21-county service rely on us to help feed them. Last year, we provided more than 27.5 million meals and the need is just as great this year. Gleaners provides food and grocery items to over 250 food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and residential care centers, called agency partners. We also provide direct service programs that include BackSacks – Weekend Food for Kids, School-Based Pantries, and Mobile Pantries. Volunteers help inspect, sort, and pack these food and grocery items in order to prepare them for these hunger relief agencies.
