With donations from generous individuals, businesses, farms, wholesalers, retailers, dairies, bakeries and restaurants, we help support over 250 working families in Skagit County. The food and items donated help supplement the income for these families as they volunteer to support others in the community.
Our organization is proud to be purely powered by the membership it serves. We feel strongly about all members working together as a community to serve and support one another.
Not only does Skagit Gleaners support families in the community, they keep over 640,000 pounds of food from going to landfills. On average, each member receives 200 pounds of healthy, nutritious produce each month for his or her family.
Skagit Gleaners was started in 1984 to address food waste and hunger. We reclaim products from stores, farmers, and individuals that otherwise would be discarded and end up in landfills. Some products may not be perfect, but they are still nutritious and good for your family’s enjoyment. Membership is open to all who are willing to pay a nominal membership fee and complete volunteer work to support the organization. By volunteering together, we maintain dignity, self-esteem, and provide an alternative to area food banks.
