Mission Statement

Alleviate hunger among the poor and elderly and to glean surplus foods, at low or no cost, from every available source, for distribution among the needy members and other charitable organizations in a fair and equitable manner.

Description

Volunteers, in refrigerated trucks, pick up surplus food from grocery stores and reclamation centers; and gather produce from orchards, farmers' fields and individuals' yards. Food is transported to our warehouse where it is sorted and prepared for distribution through over 130 non-profit charities. Last year, Senior Gleaners distributed over 8.3 million pounds of emergency food to approximately 108,000 people of all ages in 12 Northern California counties.

Our Mission Feeding the hungry since 1976 Through our affiliate charities, SGI feeds families from all walks of life, from infant and the elderly to the homeless. If you qualify, for every 4 hours worked you will receive 15 lbs. of food from our pantry. Your support is needed. 99% of all donations to Senior Gleaners go directly to feed the hungry. Less than 1% is used for administration.
