Once a month, Our Low-income Members and Volunteers along with members of 13 other gleaning organizations in Linn and Benton counties spend the morning repacking food at Linn-Benton Food Share’s Warehouse in Tangent, Oregon. We also pick up food through agency partner agreements with Linn-Benton Food Share, Feed America, and The Oregon Food Bank. Food is also acquired through local donors and private donation from members in our community.
Our Members glean food and wood from farms and donors.
Low-income members who go on gleans get to keep 50% of the food and wood they glean. The other 50% goes to low-income adoptee households or households where there is not an adult who is physically or mentally capable of working.
