Urban Gleaners' mission is to help alleviate hunger by collecting edible surplus food from grocery stores, farmers markets, farms,event sites, and restaurants that would otherwise be thrown away. We redistribute this food to agencies that feed the hungry and to at-risk children and their families through our Food to Schools program. Hunger is less an issue of scarce resources but rather inefficient distribution. The concept of picking up and redistributing food is a simple and highly effective weapon in the fight against hunger.
