It's the right thing to do.

Gleaning is Biblical

In the Bible God instructs farmers to leave a portion of their crops for the poor to gather (glean).

Using surplus produce to feed the hungry. Less food waste.
Proven Process

What is our process?

To accomplish our mission, Kalamazoo Valley Gleaners will utilize
knowledge gained by consulting with other successful gleaners across North
America, purchase the necessary equipment, develop essential procedures,
and put them in place in our new facility.

We collect surplus produce from local farmers (saving it from the landfill).

With volunteers, we wash, chop, dehydrate, and package the produce.

We partner with reputable relief agencies and ship our meals overseas to malnourished people.
