About Us

Urban Gleaners is a small, Portland-based organization that picks up edible, surplus food from grocery stores, farmers markets, farms, restaurants, and event sites and delivers it to local agencies that feed the hungry. We also deliver large quantities of food to 17 elementary schools throughout Portland metro, where between 70-90% of families are living below the poverty line. Hunger is less a problem of scarce resources but rather inefficient distribution. The concept of picking up and redistributing food is a simple yet powerful weapon in the fight against hunger.
