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.
