Philomath Community Gleaners help to feed the hungry by harvesting local food that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it back to our gleaner members. Last year, 236,147 pounds of food were distributed through this successful program. Woodshare is also a component of our Gleaners program. Donated firewood is cut, collected, and shared among Gleaner members who need wood as a fuel source.
A unique feature of this program is that gleaner volunteers are able to share the food and firewood that they harvest with “adoptees” or those people who cannot physically glean food or firewood but still have needs for one or both.
The Philomath Community Gleaners program is affiliated with the Linn Benton Food Share’s Gleaners program and follows its guidelines and policies.
