We live in the world's wealthiest nation. Yet 14.5 percent of U.S. households,nearly 49million Americans,including 16.2 million children—struggle to put food on the table. In the United States, hunger is not caused by a scarcity of food, but rather the ongoing issues related to poverty.
The most direct way to reduce hunger in the U.S. is through national nutrition programs. But while food assistance to hungry people is vital, it is not enough.
Gleaners will be closed on December 24th and December 25th. We will also be closed on December 31st and January 1st.
We will be giving out holiday starter boxes with a lot of the basic needs for a holiday meal starting on December 15th through December the 23rd.

How to help
The Gleaners Community Kitchen exists because of the generous support we receive from the community. We are truly a community of neighbors helping neighbors.
We are thankful for the support we receive from businesses and individuals, and it is this blend of gifts that keeps us successfully operating today. Consider the donation option that works best for you – the gift of time, money or food.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
